TransForm receives national recognition


The largest digital transformation project of its kind by the TransForm SSO e-VOLVE team for health care in Erie St. Clair has been recognized by a national organization.

Carried out over the course of the pandemic, the team leading the ground-breaking initiative has been named a winner of the CIO Awards Canada 2022 by International Data Corporation (IDC) and CIO.

In partnership with the Chatham-Kent Health Alliance, Erie Shores HealthCare, Hotel-Dieu Grace Healthcare and Windsor Regional Hospital, the TransForm SSO led the team to implement the Cerner Millennium hospital information system.

The e-VOLVE project focused on building a shared longitudinal patient record – that is easily utilized – across the system that includes six sites and more than 1,000 hospital beds.

The project contributed to a 20 per cent improved satisfaction rate while enabling four of its member hospitals to achieve a high rating in health information management systems, which only 19 other Canadian hospitals were able to achieve.

Noralyn ‘Lyn’ Baluyot acknowledged the contributions of her team in a recent media release.

“I am incredibly proud of what has been accomplished and look forward to many more milestones as we achieve better systems and better care together,” Baluyot said.

TransForm Shared Service Organization is a not-for-profit organization founded by the five hospitals in Erie St. Clair to manage hospital IT and supply chain needs.
