William Osler Board of Directors Portal

William Osler Health System

"I Envision... a confidential Board of Directors Portal that promotes collaboration and communication between board members and the corporation.”

The Client

William Osler Health System is one of Canada's largest community hospital corporations serving the growing and diverse communities of Brampton, Etobicoke and surrounding areas in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA). Osler's hospitals include Etobicoke General, Brampton Civic and Peel Memorial which together provide a comprehensive range of acute care, ambulatory and ancillary health services. Osler is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors which is supported by a strong and revitalized senior leadership team and two Community Advisory Councils that provide input and feedback to the Board on matters concerning local health care delivery.

The Solution

When William Osler Health System approached Envision IT, they had a very clear idea of what they required for their Board of Directors’ Portal. The Portal would primarily be a vehicle for distributing documents related to the various board meetings, a reference site for board contact and profile information and documentation, and a discussion area. Envision IT deployed MOSS 2007 and created a collaboration site with standard out-of-the-box SharePoint functionality and rich features of a publishing site. The resulting design would allow members to get up to speed quickly, and increase productivity immediately.

The Results

  • A secure Portal where members can collaborate efficiently and confidentially
  • A one-stop location where members can find all the resources they need to support Board business
  • Clear site design and easy navigation that will increase end-user adoption
  • A site that was developed and deployed in minimal time
  • Opportunity for expansion with future requirements
