Logibec has won the call for tenders of QC Ministry of Health & Social Services for the Enterprise Master Patient Index

Montreal, March 2th, 2017 – Logibec Inc. (Logibec) has won the call for tenders issued by the Quebec Ministry of Health and Social Services (MSSS) for the implementation of an Enterprise Master Patient Index (EMPI). This 3-year contract with renewal options is for the implementation of a single standardized patient index in all healthcare facilities throughout Quebec.

The EMPI developed by Logibec provides centralized secure management of patient identification and acts as the unifying index for the various patient indexes of the distinct sites constituting a healthcare facility. Patient identification promotes the standardization of practices and common identifiers across the province thereby ensuring the secure identification of patients throughout their care trajectory. It is an essential element in the sharing of computerized information between healthcare professionals and in effective care management.

Logibec’s EMPI has always continued to evolve along with the ever-changing health network. Today, after over a decade of enhancements to adapt to the needs of Quebec healthcare facilities, Logibec’s EMPI software is the perfect solution for managing the rigorous patient identification process.

Logibec’s EMPI will interface with all local and master patient indexes, originating from various software vendors, used in Quebec healthcare facilities to ensure data synchronization, resulting in a patient identification process that is more effective, uniform and efficient.

Marc Brunet, President and Chief Executive Officer of Logibec states: “This gain demonstrates the strength of our EMPI solution which is a direct result of the work of our medical archivists, analysts, consultants and developers to develop and implement a solution that meets the expectations of the MSSS. Logibec always innovates while taking into account existing operational products as well as the reality that healthcare facilities are facing. Our EMPI solution, developed over the past years, is a reflection of that.”

Logibec’s approach for implementing the EMPI solution is aimed at enabling healthcare facilities to become self-reliant as soon as possible with regards to understanding and using their solution while minimizing the impacts on other existing systems. The implementation of Logibec’s EMPI solution will contribute to improving the quality of care and the efficiency of the healthcare system in Quebec.
