I am pleased to welcome Bob Lapointe as Director of Information Resources for the Centre intégré universitaire de santé et de services sociauxdu Centre-Ouest-de-l’Île-de-Montréal (CIUSSS West-Central Montreal).

In this new role, Mr. Lapointe will be responsible for the gathering, archiving and accessibility of all clinical and administrative data or documents. He will ensure that all clinical staff have the required access to consult, edit and share clinical and administrative information. Mr. Lapointe will also oversee the availability, performance, maintenance and life span of equipment and infrastructure, including that of telecommunications.

Mr. Lapointe was named Interim Director of Information Resources when the CIUSSS West-Central Montreal was implemented on April 1. Previously, he worked in Information Technologies (IT) for forty years, most recently as Chief Information Officer Future Electronics. Mr. Lapointe has also worked at CGI, Dominion Textile, Finance Collection Agency, Trans Quebec & Maritimes Pipeline, Canadian National Railway, Steinberg’s and Redpath Sugar.

“I am excited about this opportunity to use my experience and leadership in the IT field to help the CIUSSS West-Central Montreal,” says Mr. Lapointe. “In today’s reality of limited human and financial resources, I will work with the team in IT, as well as clinical and non-clinical staff, to do our part in improving the patient and staff experience throughout our network.”

Together with Mr. Lapointe, the rest of the management team, and in partnership with all of the institutions in our network, I am eager to embark on this new era in health care. The role of technology and informatics in healthcare is vital, and continues to evolve at a fast pace. I look forward to taking strides into the future with Mr. Lapointe, his team and with contributions from our internal experts. Ultimately, the technological and informational advancements we can achieve at all points of care will help staff access the tools and information they need to provide the best care and services for the patients of our CIUSSS West-Central Montreal.
