What is e-VOLVE?

Formerly known as the Regional HIS Transformation Project, e-VOLVE is about the five hospitals in the Erie St. Clair (ESC) region coming together to implement a single, common hospital information system (HIS). With the hospitals currently operating their own outdated HIS solutions, e-VOLVE will equip the region with modernized technology which will further enable the delivery of high-quality, safe care to our patients. As a multi-year clinical transformation, e-VOLVE will require dedicated effort from a team of resources – from clinical, to clerical, to IT – that can help deliver across a number of interrelated project workstreams and focus areas.
