Canada Health Infoway and Dedalus Forge Partnership to Advance Healthcare Interoperability

Canada Health Infoway, in collaboration with Dedalus, is excited to announce a new partnership aimed at improving healthcare interoperability across Canada with an innovative Terminology Solution. This strategic collaboration has resulted in the procurement of a managed service Terminology Solution, set to be a crucial resource for standards SMEs, government agencies, specification developers, and healthcare consumers nationwide.

The new solution, fully compliant with Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR) standards, operates as a centralized hub for standard terminologies in Canada, eliminating duplicative efforts within the healthcare ecosystem and streamlining access to critical information. With secure cloud hosting, comprehensive implementation services, training, and a dedicated support desk, the solution is poised to empower users with unparalleled efficiency and effectiveness.

The solution is powered by Ontoserver from CSIRO, Australia’s national science agency. CSIRO’s Ontoserver product is a world-leading clinical terminology server implementing FHIR terminology services and supporting syndication–based content.

In the coming months, Infoway and Dedalus will work through a strategic and comprehensive rollout plan and onboarding process to support the launch of the new Terminology Solution, without impacting the exceptional services our stakeholders rely on.

"This collaboration between Canada Health Infoway and Dedalus marks a significant milestone in our collective journey towards achieving healthcare interoperability," said Abhi Kalra, Executive Vice President of Connected Care at Canada Health Infoway. "By providing a centralized platform for standard terminologies, we are simplifying processes and enhancing the quality of care for all Canadians."

The partnership with Dedalus underscores the commitment to excellence in healthcare technology. "We are proud to partner with Canada Health Infoway in delivering terminology services ," said Daryll Goodall, Regional Managing Director, Dedalus UK, Ireland and APAC. " As a provider of healthcare software, we understand the healthcare language and integration challenges our customers face. Our combined expertise will undoubtedly propel the adoption of clinical terminologies and foster seamless exchange of information, whilst advancing clinical decision support and analytics.”

The Terminology Solution offers numerous benefits, including improved healthcare interoperability, simplified adoption of clinical terminologies and other code systems, and timely access to national and international standards. It promises to facilitate the seamless exchange of information and significantly enhance clinical decision support and analytics capabilities.

This partnership signifies a pivotal moment in the advancement of healthcare technology in Canada.
