CTCA was seeking a solution provider with a history of delivering innovative new design to serve the unique needs of their clients. One of the features anticipated is to provide CTCA-affiliated healthcare providers with integration between their Microsoft® Outlook calendars and their hospital schedule. This integration will provide two-way communication between Microsoft® Outlook and Unibased’s ForSite2020® enterprise scheduling to expedite resource management, enhance physician relations and improve efficiency for streamlined coordination of care.
Chris Cashell, Assistant Vice President of Enterprise Technology Services for CTCA, stated, “One of the primary reasons Unibased was selected is their reputation for working with their clients toward development of new ways to improve access and resource utilization. After conducting a comprehensive vendor evaluation and due diligence process, the CTCA selection committee concluded that Unibased offers a superior solution that is uniquely positioned to deliver the scheduling capabilities and integration required by an organization specializing in caring for cancer patients."
Bob Grass, Unibased Principal Consultant, added, “In the initial discussions with CTCA, it became clear that Unibased was the missing piece of the puzzle for them, combining the current Unibased ForSite2020® product set with the development of additional unique solutions for the special market served by CTCA. We are delighted to assist CTCA in their very special mission and will be proud to share in their success. CTCA’s newest facility in the Atlanta area will open in the early summer of 2012 with ForSite2020® in full operation.”
