MISSISSAUGA, ON, Aug. 25 /CNW/ - Salumatics Inc. and Trillium Health Centre today announce a five (5) year agreement that will see Salumatics provide remote hosting of Trillium Health Records in SaluVision®, a platform independent Software as a Service (SaaS) software product.

"Trillium Health Centre is a unique tertiary care community hospital that is working to meet a growing demand in for health care services in Mississauga and west Toronto," said Allan Magnacca, President of Salumatics. "By using our software, Trillium will be able to integrate their electronic and paper records and expedite access to patient health information."

The SaluVision SaaS platform provides Trillium with a cost effective secure alternative to expensive legacy based Electronic Document Management Systems.

SaluVision enhances Salumatics' already robust product offerings at Trillium which include document conversion, data hosting and disaster recovery, and allow multiple users to concurrently and securely access data instantly from any web browser.

"SaluVision will provide the needed redundancy to ensure that critical information is always available to our clinicians," said May Chang, VP, Decision Support and Chief Financial Officer for Trillium Health Centre. "We continue to benefit from our strong partnership with Salumatics which has helped us integrate our paper and electronic patient records to better serve our patients."
