Parkville precinct EMR being re-scoped following funding failure

Royal Melbourne Hospital and its partner facilities in the Parkville precinct are still working towards a long-term shared electronic medical record after an ambitious business case for a full EMR, strongly rumoured to be supplied by Epic, failed to receive funding in this year's state budget.

The new plan involves a re-scope of the original proposal with some functionality to be introduced in the early stages, including a solution to replace the Symphony emergency department system, which vendor EMIS Health will no longer support after December.
