ACT Health makes Epic choice for $151m digital health record

ACT Health will implement the Epic electronic medical record for its $151 million Territory-wide digital health record project, which will assist it in its aim to achieve HIMSS Level 6 in three years' time.

Epic will be rolled out in a big bang implementation at Canberra Hospital, Calvary Public Hospital Bruce and University of Canberra Hospital, along with community health centres, walk-in centres and Justice Health centres.

The only comment I would like to make here is I hope they have 'consulted' the Melbourne Children's Hospital and how they overcame and still do, the various roadblocks during implementation. Big Bang implementations are fraught with danger and most often 'hit the wall' when the significant socio-technical factors are poorly addressed (see Coiera 2014)
