VICTORIA – While the B.C. government has been fighting criticism stemming from the high incidence of C. difficile at the Burnaby General Hospital, it is also claiming some good news. Namely, the use of lean techniques across the healthcare system is significantly reducing patient wait times and increasing efficiency.
Medworxx Inc. (MWX-X0.25—-%), a leader in clinical patient flow, compliance and education solutions that closed Tuesday near a year high 28 cents, announced a broad partnership with MediSolution, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Harris Computer Systems. The partnership formalises a longstanding relationship between the two companies that worked to integrate their information technology solutions for several mutual hospital client sites. Under the agreement, Medworxx and MediSolution will explore synergies in sales and technology arenas.
