HiNZ 2017: Southern Cross Hospitals goes paper-lite for nurses

Southern Cross Hospitals has completed the first phase in its roll-out of Orion Health's Clinical Workstation, which has seen the organisation begin its move from paper to electronic for clinical documentation by concentrating on its nurses first.

Admissions data, three risk assessments, surgical site surveillance and discharge summaries are now captured electronically, and NZ's largest network of private surgical hospitals is now looking at moving into phase two, where it hopes to expand its use of electronic whiteboards into theatres, build an app for doctors to access information remotely, and get day to day care planning and nursing notes entered electronically.
