The Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario officially went live with the Acute Care Enhanced Surveillance system today, completing surveillance coverage of the geography serviced by Ottawa Public Health.
Public health and acute care partners from Pembroke Regional Hospital and Renfrew County District Health Unit will now have access to real-time data for a wide range of syndromes with the potential to impact population health. This data can be used as an early warning system for emerging pathogens, and can aid in the planning of strategies to minimize risk.
Today we are happy to welcome Markham Stouffville Hospital Corporation to the ACES system. As they are within the geographic footprint of the Pan/Para Pan American Games, they will participate in a special initiative to monitor population health risks that accompany a mass gathering scenario.
