Roseanne Pegler, Executive Lead of the Regional Cancer Program Central LHIN, and Jay Lawrence, PatientWay CEO, will team-up to deliver a session at the upcoming IT Healthcare Canada Conference in Toronto this October.
Streamlining Cancer Centre Patient Registration and Symptom Management with an Automated and Patient-Centred Model will highlight how The Stronach Regional Cancer Centre and PatientWay are leading a successful project to streamline repeat visit check-ins for patients thanks to kiosk technology.
In an effort to improve the overall patient experience, the Stronach Regional Cancer Centre in Newmarket, Ontario, became the first Cancer Centre in the province to introduce an integrated symptom and registration kiosk for patients receiving cancer treatment.
The PatientWay Kiosk enables the Cancer Centre’s patients to enter a record of their symptoms at the same time as they register for their scheduled appointment. While patient registration and check-in kiosks have been widely used in other facilities for a number of years, the Stronach Regional Cancer Centre is the first to offer integrated check-in and symptom assessment apps.
The two organizations also engaged Cancer Care Ontario and Elekta to create a unique three-way integration between the hospital’s ADT, CCO’s ISAAC system and MosaiQ. Now, instead of having to visit two or three points of service, patients have the choice of using any of the five kiosks at the centre. These kiosks update the ADT, send a queuing message MosaiQ, and collect the patient’s ESAS scores from one seamless encounter.

We hope to see you in Toronto!
PatientWay was a showcase exhibitor at this year’s OCE Discovery conference in Toronto. Discovery is Canada’s leading innovation-to-commercialization conference. It brings together key players from industry, academia, government, the investment community as well as entrepreneurs and students to pursue collaboration opportunities.
PatientWay CEO Jay Lawrence was one of only eight qualifiers to be invited to participate in the popular Elevator Pitch Contest. The concept is simple: each speaker only gets 5 minutes to introduce their product, explain what real-life problem it solves, provide evidence that it works and outline how the company plans to accelerate its growth. And after the pitch, answer a few tough questions from the judges.
Jay Lawrence was declared the winner of the competition by the panel of judges, that was comprised of some of Canada’s leading venture capitalists and angel investors, including Colin Kelleher (President, Kelleher Financial) and Barbara Wilkes (Managing Partner, Management Initiatives).
Jay’s pitch focused on PatientWay’s ability to bring time and cost efficiencies to healthcare organizations by introducing patient self-service technologies. He also highlighted PatientWay’s successes to date in working with hospitals such as Southlake Regional Health Centre and the Stronach Cancer Care Centre. He ended the pitch by reflecting on PatientWay’s bright future, thanks to its recent acquisition of one of Canada’s largest hospitals (Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre) as a client, and a new partnership with Practice Solutions Software (a Canadian Medical Association company) that will bring PatientWay kiosk technology to physician offices across Canada.
