Health Canada Selects Open Text For Records Management

Apr 29, 2003

Open Text has also announced that Health Canada selected Open Text's records management solution, iRIMS, to fulfill its corporate records requirements throughout all of Health Canada. Dubbed the aXs Project, Open Text integrated its records management technology with IBM's Domino.Doc to improve access to information and support both enterprise-wide document and records management at Health Canada. The integration is designed to provide access to Open Text's records management directly from Domino.Doc, which will enable Health Canada employees to apply records management functionality to any documents and records within the electronic repository. Health Canada has already migrated approximately 750,000 paper records into the records management production environment. In partnership with provincial and territorial governments, Health Canada assists in developing health policy, enforcing health regulations, promoting disease prevention, and enhancing healthy living for all Canadians. The result of the integration solution for Health Canada employees is a system that allows all records and information holdings pertaining to these programs and initiatives to be accessed from every desktop during the normal course of daily operation.
