In-house information system helps Gold Coast hit NEST targets

The Gold Coast Health and Griffith University team that recently won Queensland's top eHealth award for developing an automated system to manage elective surgery waiting lists is now turning its attention to adapting the system for wider use, including theatre management and emergency department patient flow.

The MIS team, led by Centre for Health Innovation executive director Martin Connor and project director Steve Gough, has developed an automated, web-based system that enables surgical teams to see their waiting list every morning, updated almost in real time, along with an application that automatically identifies which patients need to be seen as a priority.
