Westmead goes live with eMeds and eFluids in 'audacious and ambitious' program

Sydney's 1000-bed Westmead Hospital has gone live with new electronic medications management (eMeds) and electronic fluid orders and drug infusions (eFluids) systems from Cerner, along with an uplift to the existing version of the electronic medical record and the latest version of the FirstNet emergency department system.

The go-live at Westmead last week follows a pioneering implementation at Auburn Hospital six months ago and at Blacktown Hospital two months ago as part of Western Sydney Local Health District's Digital Health Clinical Program, which is upgrading the clinical systems in all five hospitals in the LHD.
