CHI Seeing Increase in Service Use and Collaborations

CHI is seeing a continuous increase in the use of its services across all platforms. We have nearly surpassed our project total for last year and still have several months to go before our fiscal year end. Make sure to visit chimb.ca to learn more about our platforms and all the services they offer.

Supporting Improved Patient Flow

In collaboration with WRHA, CHI has been using more in-depth analytical approaches to develop Children’s Hospital bed predictions, identify Health Sciences Centre Adult ED bottlenecks and identify population needs for use in Patient Flow initiatives and the Delivery Unit. As well, we helped inform on a regional Family Medicine inpatient model. All of these efforts are also helping us to put together a team and suggest a methodology to develop an enterprise-wide ‘ideal’ bed map.
