SPIRE Project Manager, South West Local Health Integration Network

London, Ontario
Deadline November 4, 2009

The South West Local Health Integration Network (LHIN), is one of 14 local organizations that have been created in Ontario to plan, coordinate and fund local health services, including hospitals, community care access centres (CCACs), long-term care homes, community health centres (CHCs), community support service agencies, and mental health and addictions agencies.

SPIRE enables physicians to obtain radiology reports, laboratory results and notes electronically from health testing sites, rather than by mail or fax, resulting in shorter waiting time for reports, and fewer misdirected documents. The mandate of the SPIRE project is to provide a secure electronic interface between a number of South West Ontario hospitals’ Electronic Patient Records (EPR) and participating regional physicians’ offices, allowing radiology reports, lab results and notes to be delivered electronically into the physicians’ electronic medical records.

If you have a passion for excellence, an entrepreneurial spirit and a desire to transform the Ontario healthcare system, then consider the South West Local Health integration Network (LHIN) for your next career move.
