Federal Economic Development Agency Funds People-Centered Healthcare
TORONTO, Sept. 12, 2012 /CNW/ - NexJ Systems Inc., (TSX: NXJ) a leading provider of next generation enterprise customer
relationship management (CRM) solutions, today announced that the NexJ Connected Wellness Platform has been selected as a fundamental component of a Federal Economic
Development Agency funded people-centered healthcare initiative, the Connected Health and Wellness Project (CHWP).
16 Ontario partners have come together to use the NexJ Connected
Wellness Platform for the CHWP, a new people-centered and
technology-enabled project that will enable patients to keep health
information from different hospitals or clinics in one place, and allow
them decide who they trust to see that information. The system will
offer tools to help people better manage their own health and wellness
and more easily connect with healthcare professionals. In addition, the
CHWP will enhance collaboration among these professionals.
"The NexJ Connected Wellness Platform delivers health information
directly to the patient. People can then share that information with
others: family, advocates, health coaches, physicians, specialists,
other providers, and social communities - all through the cloud," said
William M. Tatham, Chief Executive Officer, NexJ Systems Inc.
"Empowering the individual to take control of their wellness has the
potential of reducing illness and therefore the strain on the
healthcare system. We believe the NexJ Connected Wellness Platform has
the ability to revolutionize the way healthcare systems operate today,
across North America and around the world, and the Connected Health and
Wellness Project will demonstrate that."
The Federal government has provided $15.5 million in funding for the
CHWP to spur health care innovation in Southern Ontario as well as job
creation in industry, health care and academia. The Federal Economic
Development Agency for Southern Ontario is working with major partners
York University, McMaster University and NexJ Systems, along with other
"This partnership is an important step forward for transforming and
sustaining healthcare and wellness systems in Canada and globally,"
said Harvey Skinner, Dean of the Faculty of Health at York University.
"The combination of mobile technology, electronic health records and
behaviour change supported by a Health Coach will help more people live
healthier, longer, and receive timely access to effective healthcare
when needed. This is the essence of people-centred health."
Benefits of the project will include increased healthcare system
efficiency, better health outcomes and economic growth through the
creation of personalized healthcare services.
Among the organizations currently using the NexJ Connected Wellness
Platform is Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, New York City Public
Health, Saskatchewan Cancer Agency and the Black Creek Community Health
