ACT Health opens tender for digital health record with full EMR and PAS capabilities

The ACT Health Directorate has released a tender for a new digital health record to cover all public health services in the ACT, requiring full electronic medical record capabilities, integration with medical devices and consumer health monitoring devices and the ability to replace the current ACTPAS patient administration system.

The chosen digital health record must be currently implemented at another hospital system that has achieved Level 7 on the HIMSS electronic medical record adoption model (EMRAM), either for inpatients or outpatients or both.

ACT Health itself is aiming to achieve HIMSS Level 6 for the new system by 2023-24 and Level 7 by 2026-27. The new system will cover all public health services in the ACT, including Canberra Hospital, Calvary Public Hospital Bruce and University of Canberra Hospital, along with its community health centres, walk-in centres and Justice Health centres.
