eHealth NSW secures $536m over eight years for digital health 'revolution'

eHealth NSW has secured extra funding totalling $536 million over the next eight years for a swathe of digital health initiatives, including expanding its electronic medications management (eMeds) program, completing the roll-out of phase two of its electronic medical record (eMR2) and expanding the HealtheNet clinical data repository to allow clinicians to see pathology results anywhere in the state.

There is also funding for new initiatives such as integrating the NSW Ambulance eMR system to emergency department eMR solutions, enhancing the ambulance eMR and providing additional mobile devices to frontline paramedics, and migrating the NSW Ambulance computer-aided dispatch solution to the government data centre (GovDC).
