South Bruce Grey Health Centre

Background

The South Bruce Grey Health Centre (SBGHC) serves a community of approximately 44,000 people, plus 10,000 seasonal residents and 30,000 tourists across four rural hospital sites located in Chesley, Durham, Kincardine and Walkerton. The staff team of close to 400 provides high quality care in a friendly and safe environment. Services include acute, coronary and obstetrical care, surgery and a full range of diagnostic and ambulatory care services. SBGHC recognized the need for a new website, placing high value on the ability to manage its own content updates at a dynamic website, as well as the need for events to be posted, and Ministry of Health mandates that must be rapidly executed to the website.

The Project

Working with SBGHC, Sandbox Software Solutions developed a sophisticated website using the INTRATUITIVE web Content Management System, which allows website administrators to easily manage the range of content commonly deployed by the Centre. Sandbox Software also incorporated a robust media gallery, along with HR tools facilitating employee recruitment and resumé collection. A Staff Portal was also developed for the SBGHC using INTRATUITIVE. This extranet allows staff members to search for text strings on any web page and/or any document uploaded to the private portal, manage in-house events, attach a text forum to any uploaded document for comments. Finally, a Board of Directors web portal was also implemented, which provides support for board document assembly and distribution, and archiving of board meetings outcomes.

Outcome

With a strong focus on communication, collaboration and information sharing, the website and portals developed for SBGHC have streamlined many business processes and allows the Health Centre to be more efficient and more effective.
