An innovative mental health project is awarded a prize

The pilot project Demonstration of the Clinical utility of the Resident Assessment Instrument through Lean Methodologies… the making of!, carried out by the Mental Health and Addiction Programs Directorate, was crowned the winner in the SME Public or Not-for Profit Organization category during the Information Technology Association of Canada’s 2018 Ingenious Awards.  

The project demonstrated that reducing patient length of stay would not have been possible without AcuteNet’s technology. Through the use of this information technology, the average length of stay was reduced by 25% and the use of control measures decreased by 37%. 

Gilbert A. Tremblay, Psychologist and Resident Assessment Instrument for Mental Health (RAI-MH) specialist, attended the event, held in Toronto on November 6, on behalf of the project team. 

The Ingenious Award Program is an initiative that celebrates businesses and organizations which demonstrate measurable evidence of productivity improvement, efficiency gains, revenue growth, overall business transformation or other organizational outcomes through the use of technology.

Congratulations to all who participated in the project!
