Weeneebayko Area Health Authority (WAHA) engaged Angus Connect to develop key IMIT recommendations for Weeneebayko General Hospital and the Moosonee Health Centre in preparation for the Business Plan and Master Plans for these sites.
Additional WAHA sites include hospitals in Fort Albany and Attawapiskat and dedicated community nursing stations in Peawanuck and Kashechewan.
The new facilities in Moose Factory and Moosonee will feature upgraded core systems and more automation built into the infrastructure. These will support high quality patient care, along with facilitating safe and efficient workflows well into the future.
A key driver of the Project was to “future-proof” the infrastructure to support advances in information communications technology as it evolves, and to ensure that the physical space will support the changes to workflow that occur with technology development. One of the challenges in planning for these sites was the geographic isolation and vendor capabilities to support more advanced technology and integration to other sites.
The ICAT Summary Report was developed to ensure that the themes envisioned for the future state are documented, and that a strategic approach was applied to achieving the vision by carefully balancing resources with urgency to align the vision with the Capital Project.
