Davinci Employs Intranet at University Health Network

Davinci Technologies Inc. this week said it will lend its intranet system to Toronto's University Health System to provide its 8,000 staff members with network information right at their desktops.

The system spans across desktops throughout UHN's three teaching hospitals as well as Toronto Medical Laboratories, a joint venture between UHN and MDS Laboratories.

Davinci claims the implementation of an intranet will deliver three major advantages to UNH. First, the authors can easily revise intranet documents using Web-based technology. Second, only the most current versions of these documents are accessible to users, eliminating inaccuracies or redundant information and improving employee productivity. Third, the costs and risks associated with manual, paper-based processes are reduced.

"The corporate intranet represents a major step forward for University Health Network's information management strategy," said Matthew Anderson, chief information officer of the University Health Network. "It is a strategic internal communications tool that allows our employees to quickly and conveniently access information they need on a daily basis."

Davinci Technologies is a leading provider of Internet and intranet products and wireless applications, enabling strategic enterprise-level solutions.
