SickKids Wins Wow! Factor Award for eCHN

June 2010. Since May, "The Quest for Canada’s Smartest IT" had been on the hunt for organizations with IT departments that were re-inventing the way their organization uses technology. At a Gala event on June 15th, the IT team at The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids) received the Wow! Factor Award for its innovative use of technology, as demonstrated by its role in helping to develop eCHN.

In making their decision, the independent award panel made specific reference to the team’s, “leadership on the development and implementation of eCHN as a tool to help health care providers across the province quickly exchange medical information critical to children’s health...This technology is used daily as a tool to help save the lives of our children.”
