Sydney LHD rolls out PowerChart Maternity for digital health record from birth

Sydney Local Health District (LHD) has rolled out Cerner's PowerChart Maternity module at Royal Prince Alfred and Canterbury hospitals, with a baby girl called Charlene Nguyen the first newborn to have a digital health record fully integrated into NSW Health's Cerner Millennium electronic medical record (eMR).

Charlene was born at Canterbury Hospital on Tuesday, October 1 following the roll-out of PowerChart Maternity, which provides full antenatal, inpatient and outpatient workflows integrated into the eMR.

It is mobile enabled so midwives visiting mothers and babies at home can view their records on their mobile devices.

We would also like to congratulate SLHD on this milestone, but I would like to take this opportunity to highlight that K2's Guardian System has been delivering continuous fetal heart rate monitoring, central surveillance, remote fetal heart rate surveillance and archiving as an integral part of both RPA and Canterbury's maternity care since 2017.

K2 are also in the midst of finalising an interface with SLHDs Powerchart that will present fetal heart rate and annotation data within every woman's record. We have successfully commissioned similar interfaces at other sites, both here in Australia and in the UK.
