CRISP - New Client Information System Goes 'Live'


Ontario Association of Children’s Rehabilitation Services is pleased to announce that five of our member centres will be launching their new Children’s Rehabilitation Information System (CRISP) this month.

We would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Children’s Treatment Centre of Chatham- Kent, KidsAbility - Centre for Child Development, Quinte Children’s Treatment Centre, Children’s Niagara Peninsula Children’s Centre and John McGivney Children’s Centre. For the past 20 months these centres along with 7 others (who will launch in July), have been working with Campana Systems Inc. and Healthtech Consultants Inc. to develop a new children’s rehabilitation information software system (GoldCare) that will allow multi-disciplinary teams to conduct a team assessment, develop an integrated plan of care, share important information, view clinical notes and monitor a child progress.

Each Children’s Treatment Centre will have a common technology platform to manage every stage of the child’s care cycle. Information that was maintained separately in ‘silos’ will be consolidated and integrated, allowing key data to be shared seamlessly across the continuum of care, and within an interoperable and secure environment that protects client privacy and confidentiality. Care team members will be able to collaborate directly to coordinate care planning and service delivery efforts, and communicate outcomes. Decisions will be made jointly to develop an interdisciplinary single plan of care for the child that best allocates services and maximizes resource capacity.

This progressive health informatics model, one of the first of its kind in Ontario, will increase data accuracy and expediency, while eliminating administrative redundancies, resulting in expected reductions in wait times, quicker referrals to services, and improved quality of care. At a system level, OACRS will gain collective statistics from the participating CTCs for outcome measurement and program planning, driving best practices to improve outcomes and to build capacity to serve areas of greatest need.
