Eastern Health rolls out full Millennium stack in big EMR uplift

Melbourne's Eastern Health has rolled out an extensive uplift of its existing Cerner electronic medical record, going live with a customised ICU module, surgery and anaesthesia as well the FirstNet emergency department module at Box Hill Hospital, replacing the old Symphony ED solution that is no longer supported by Ascribe owner EMIS Health.

Eastern Health now plans to roll out FirstNet to Angliss and Maroondah hospitals, along with projects to optimise the new Millennium modules and then begin the task of replacing the organisation's patient administration system.

This is great news for Box Hill but until we have a Health Information Exchange in Victoria, this continued use of silos is not really benefiting patients that move across different hospitals and clinical settings. As more hospitals are investing large sums of public money into digital records, it is important for this exchange of information to be available, and the MyHealth record is not yet up to that challenge.
