About Dovetale

St. Joe’s is joining our mission of providing compassionate care with leading healthcare technology.

We are transforming the way we work and provide care through a digital healthcare movement.

 

What is it?

St. Joe’s is joining our mission of providing compassionate care with leading healthcare technology.

We are transforming the way we work and provide care through a digital healthcare movement.

  •  St. Joe’s will be implementing a fully integrated, safe and secure information solution that will place all of a patient’s information in one place.
    • It means patients will only need to tell their full story once, and add on to it.
    •  All caregivers will see that same information, and care providers will be better connected to each other.
  • Patients will have new options to collaborate in their care.
    • We will be able to better engage the patient and their family and work as a team to develop care plans.
When is it happening?

This is a year-long journey to bring St. Joe’s to a fully integrated solution. We are laying the groundwork now, and will “go-live” in December 2017.

Patients will not see any changes until that time.

Why "Dovetale"?
  • Dovetale is the name of the St. Joe’s transformation in care – showing that this is more than new digital technology, it’s a way of combining the compassionate care we provide at St. Joe’s with the best digital solution.

  • Dovetale – signifies the joining of Compassion and Technology, and recognizing that the patient’s story (their ‘tale’) is at the heart of best care.
How will we empower our healthcare providers to dramatically improve care?
  • Healthcare providers will be better able to connect to each other and collaborate on patient care through one digital information solution that holds all of the patient’s story.
  • St. Joe’s will be improving patient care by providing real-time, at-the-bedside data and analysis.
  • Patients will have new options to engage in their care through better information sharing.
How will we inspire researchers, educators and all of our people to explore new opportunities to care and to cure?

This will create a huge data base of information and we’ll be able to ask questions of the data in a more effective way. 

How will this elevate St. Joe’s to a Canadian leader in hospital digital technology?
  • St. Joe’s will be a Canadian leader in safe, secure information technology, joining half a dozen hospitals with this level of technology today (HIMMS 6 – in a rating system in which 7 is the highest ranking). That means St. Joe’s will be a fully electronic hospital.
     
  • St. Joe’s is working with a premier digital information provider called Epic, placing
    St. Joe’s among prestigious academic health centres famous for their innovation including Johns Hopkins, the Mayo Clinic and Mount Sinai Health System
