DRDH to Partner with The Ottawa Hospital for Laboratory Upgrades


The current laboratory information system at the Deep River and District Hospital (DRDH) is over 14 years old, and is in critical need of updating to ensure the lab staff are able to complete testing and provide results.

The Deep River and District Hospital and The Ottawa Hospital (TOH) have entered into an agreement to provide the Regional Cerner Millennium solution to our local laboratory. The objective of this project is to assist DRDH in replacing our current Laboratory Information System solution with the TOH Regional Cerner Millennium solution, while maintaining integration with our current information system (i.e. Anzer), in preparation for the future implementation of the Regional EPIC Hospital Information System.

Work will begin on the laboratory system replacement in September. It is anticipated that the “go live” for the Laboratory Information System will occur in early 2020
