ABOUT SOUTHLAKE MEDICAL HEALTH CENTRE
Southlake Regional Health Centre (Southlake), located in in Newmarket, Ontario has been serving York Region and the surrounding community for more than 85 years. Recently, the Facility underwent an impressive transformation from a local community hospital to a leading regional health care centre. The new state-of-the-art buildings are now home to some of the most cutting-edge medical technologies and facilities in Ontario.
Southlake needed an audiovisual solution that would provide a safe, effective and consistent way to teach and train new staff. The solution needed to relay information to new doctors, nurses and other medical staff in a discrete and non-invasive way to promote learning about patient care.
THE ADVANCED SOLUTION
Advanced worked with Southlake to design an audiovisual solution to effectively capture doctor/patient interaction in a safe and non-invasive way. By using cameras and audio recording devices in hospital rooms, where patients had agreed to participation, facility staff could review interactions and assess their value for training purposes. Advanced also installed a centralized control system so each private room system could be controlled by Southlake staff.
Ensuring the privacy of participants was respected and maintained at all times, each patient was informed in advance that they would be recorded. The agreement of patients to participate in the process helped assist in the proper development and training of new doctors. The innovative teaching solution installed by Advanced will help to ensure new medical professionals interning and working within Southlake learn best practices in doctor/patient interaction, leading to the provision of the best possible care and enhanced patient outcomes in the community they serve.
