How to roll out electronic medications management to 178 hospitals

eHealth NSW's big, ambitious electronic medications management program hit what could prove a tipping point this week when it began its go-live at Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, a 1000-bed giant in inner-city Sydney that is the largest of the 19 implementations so far.

First piloted at Concord Hospital along with Prince of Wales at Randwick, the Children's Hospital at Westmead and Maitland Hospital near Newcastle, the eMeds program encompasses two EMM systems – predominantly Cerner's EMM system, with Hunter New England LHD using DXC's MedChart – and is the largest, most complex implementation of EMM that Australia has ever seen.
