Clinical Evaluation Online (CEO) Inc. licenses software developed at the University of Ottawa’s Faculty of Health Science to improve the training of nursing students.

Clinical Evaluation Online (CEO), Inc. has secured marketing rights from the University of Ottawa for its practicum evaluation software to facilitate the evaluation of nursing students, and other healthcare professionals. This is an important first step in bringing this innovation, which has improved nurse education at the University of Ottawa, to students across North America and around the world.

The web based Clinical Evaluation Online system was developed by the university’s School of Nursing , and is used by nursing students and  faculty at the University of Ottawa,  Algonquin College, and La Cité Collégiale. Nursing students and faculty have seen many benefits in moving clinical evaluations to an easy to use web based portal. With the commercial license to Clinical Evaluation Online (CEO), Inc, other universities and colleges will be able to cost effectively modernise their evaluation practices. The founders of the company played a key role in the development and implementation of the web system at the university, and have set up the company to help other institutions facilitate the smooth transition to an efficient electronic environment.

The Ottawa Technology Transfer Office, and the University of Ottawa’s Technology Transfer and Business Enterprise Office are pleased to have helped the company secure commercial rights to the technology. We are looking forward to the successful commercialisation of this technology to ensure better training for aspiring health care professionals around the world.
