The Cowichan Tribes-owned, Mustimuhw Information Solutions (MIS), is a trusted digital health partner, supplying unique software solutions designed specifically to meet the needs of First Nations Health Centres and Child & Family Service Agencies across Canada.
MIS has partnered with Novari Health to offer their First Nations Health Centres and social service agencies Novari’s virtual care technologies. The Novari eVisit™ technology is being integrated with the MIS Community Electronic Medical Record (cEMR) solution to enable MIS users the ability to virtually interact with First Nation members.
The first cohort of Indigenous users are live and using the Novari eVisit™ virtual care solution. The immediate value of this MIS lead initiative is improving both the quality of care as well as access to care for First Nations members.
MIS’ new service offering of Novari eVisit™ allows registered clients to access members of their wellness team virtually – using messaging, voice calling, and video conferencing from mobile and desktop devices, all secure and privacy compliant. Virtual services include primary care, mental wellness, homecare, personal support, maternal child health, youth work, crisis counselling, and more.
“MIS is pleased to partner with Novari Health. We are committed to improving healthcare access for Indigenous citizens in Canada, and to advancing the vision of the Access 2022 movement with the support of Canada Health Infoway. Novari Health has demonstrated that virtual care is extremely useful, especially in helping to create a better relationship between citizens and their existing providers. We are excited to be working with Novari Health to add virtual care to our effort to empower Indigenous citizens and strengthen their circle of care.”
-Mark Sommerfeld, Chief Executive Officer, Mustimuhw Information Solutions Inc.
Leveraging Novari eVisit™ allows MIS clients and caregivers to create and manage their detailed profile, including demographics, clinical information, contact preferences, and pharmacy/lab preferences. If appropriate, clients can create sub-accounts for family members and dependents to allow for family or caregivers to manage virtual care for young children or aging parents.
“Novari Health is very excited and proud to be partnering with MIS to offer virtual care to their existing customers, that currently support over 274 and growing Indigenous communities across Canada. Enabling clients to have access to their healthcare and social service providers from their desktop or mobile device is transformational to how healthcare and social services are delivered to clients across Canada. Our customized virtual care solution is meeting the needs of Indigenous communities across Canada – offering convenience to both the client and MIS healthcare partners, allowing virtual appointments to happen no matter the client or provider location.”
-John Sinclair, President, Novari Health
