Bendigo restarts TrakCare EMR go-live as it emerges from COVID waves

Victoria's Bendigo Health has rescheduled its long-planned implementation of the TrakCare electronic medical record from InterSystems for the end of next month, having delayed a planned go-live in March in order to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic.

The pandemic has seen the regional health service roll out a new remote monitoring system from Siemens Healthineers as well as convert 50 per cent of its outpatients clinics to telehealth, along with the use of thermal imaging technology for temperature testing and the creation of a specific respiratory emergency department set up within a negative pressure environment.
