OUT-TB Web application project receives a National LEADing Practice Award
Dr. Fran Jamieson, medical microbiologist, and Jennifer Guthrie, research technician, were honoured with a National LEADing Practice award for their work on the OUT-TB (Ontario Universal Typing of Tuberculosis) Web application. On Friday, February 28, 2014, at the Advancing Care symposium, Canada Health Infoway and Accreditation Canada recognized OUT-TB Web as a LEADing practice that demonstrates innovative practice in the awareness and adoption of interconnected electronic health information systems.
OUT-TB Web aids in the investigation, surveillance, and management of patients with tuberculosis and providing public health program staff and clinicians with seamless access to timely information across multiple jurisdictions.
