Hamilton’s healthcare system is being recognized worldwide for its advancements in the use of technology.
The recognition comes with the announcement that the Chief Information Officer at Hamilton Health Sciences and St Joseph’s Healthcare is the first person from Hamilton to be named a “Premier IT Leader.”
The award recognizes individuals from around the world who have a positive impact on their organizations through technology.
Mark Farrow tells CHML he believes his greatest achievement is his work on a portal known as Clinical Connect.
He says it gives “real time health information” for hospitals across the region at the fingertips of doctors and specialists.
He calls it a game changer because it means patients are able to get test results much faster from their doctors.
