M2 Information Systems’ MicroBloggingMD Expands in Canada to British Columbia’s Largest Health Authority
EDMONDS, Wash. – January 1, 2018 – Today, M2 Information Systems announces that MicroBloggingMD (MBMD) expanded in Canada to be implemented in British Columbia’s largest health authority, Fraser Health Authority, as well as in the Northern Health Authority. Both health authorities signed 5-year agreements with M2 Information Systems to improve clinical communications. MBMD will offer secure and streamlined communications and clinical information sharing between doctors, physicians and nurses to improve patient care and outcomes within the hospitals.
“For decades, we have provided an all-encompassing collaboration tool with unmatched features to hospital systems,” said Tom Wilkes, president of M2 Information Systems. “MBMD, a HIPPA complaint platform, provides superior security for communications across the healthcare system and maximizes providers ability to make quick and efficient real-time decisions.”
MBMD is a secure messaging and clinical alert technology system designed to streamline and improve team-based medicine and communication. Through the platform, clinical data and messages can be viewed and shared across a hospital network and mobile devices. By utilizing an automated process, specific team members or entire groups of people can receive alerts regarding a patient’s name, location and change in status, thus reducing texting time while improving message accuracy.
“MBMD is designed with the provider in mind – streamlining communications, real-time collaboration and offering a user-friendly platform,” said Kent Hargrave, chief operating officer of M2 Information Systems. “By expanding MBMD in Canada and providing the largest hospital system in British Columbia with effortless communications, providers will be able to deliver seamless patient care and the best outcomes.”
MBMD has been adopted in the following hospitals:
• Fraser Health Authority of British Columbia signs a 5-year agreement with M2 Information Systems to implement MBMD. Encompassing 12 acute care facilities and over 130 community sites, Fraser Health Authority plans a multi-phased implementation starting with secure text messaging to support multi-departmental workflows.
• Northern Health Authority of St. George, British Columbia signs a 5-year agreement with M2 Information Systems to implement MBMD. Following the success of neighboring Regional Health Authorities leveraging MBMD, Northern Health Authority deploys the solution across its system to improve clinical communications, physician scheduling and access to on-call resources.
