Leading Toronto Software Firm Aids Health Administration Program


P&P Data Systems of Toronto is a leader in software systems and services for the health care field, aiding physicians and health institutions in their quest for speed and efficiency in handling client needs.

Moshe Pinhas, founder and president of the company, visited Conestoga College Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning on March 17 to address students in the Health Office Administration program and to announce a donation to the program valued at $167,000.

The Clinic Information System (CIS) software is a highly developed and sophisticated product of P&P Data Systems. Its capabilities in automating patient records result in better patient care management and improved decision-making, as well as streamlined integration of many processes associated with patient care, such as registration and scheduling. The end result is a more efficient and responsive business operation for patients and service providers.

The donation to Conestoga is a CIS software licence that will allow program students to develop knowledge and practical skills in the field of medical records administration.

The core part of CIS includes hundreds and hundreds of features to help in managing health care business operations. CIS provides a reporting system that has a comprehensive set of analyses and financial reports plus providing the most powerful report generators available in the industry.

Health Office Administration is a two-year diploma-level program at Conestoga. Students gain valuable practical skills in business areas such as bookkeeping, communications, computer applications, office administration, ethics and integrated office management in the context of specialized settings medical, dental, clinical and hospital-related. They also gain knowledge in areas such as anatomy and physiology, health care delivery systems and health care terminology.

Graduates find employment in the offices of health care professionals, as well as in hospitals, clinics, community service agencies and insurance companies. The most recent Conestoga employment report shows a 100 per cent success rate for graduates of Health Office Administration.
