Financial Post - Three Canadian companies leading the health care sector’s digital transformation

Microsoft recognized ThoughtWire as one of 3 Great Canadian Innovators today! Their Financial Post feature talks about how we’re helping organizations adapt to what will be the new norm post-COVID with in-depth onsite analytics & insights to quickly change protocols & the locations of people & physical assets. 

" ThoughtWire aims to make hospitals more efficient by putting critical digital information in the hands of the right people at the right time to increase the timeliness and accuracy of decision-making and improve the patient experience. The company creates a “Digital Twin” — a virtual model of the hospital — to extract real-time, historical and predictive insights from the operation of the actual facility. Insights can include anything from saving time and increasing data accuracy — by having a nurse input patient vitals into a hand-held mobile device — to helping a building operations manager tasked with improving environmental efficiencies and delivering fresh air intake meet the requirements of a post-COVID-19 environment. "

“The human face behind Microsoft support is evident from the mutual understanding of the reasons and need for the highest levels of accuracy, security and compliance with privacy when dealing with data representing real live patients,” says Dale Hall, executive vice president at ThoughtWire. “Microsoft respects and understands our mission by not only meeting the technical requirements for these projects, but also by respecting the person at the centre of the patient journey.”
