Midland DHBs on the market for region-wide medicines management platform

The five district health boards in New Zealand's Midland region have gone to market for expressions of interest in providing an electronic prescribing and administration solution (ePA), including medicines reconciliation, to standardise and digitise medication data across the region.

The chosen solution will need to integrate with the Midland Clinical Portal (MCP), which uses Orion Health's Concerto technology, to give clinicians a view of regional patient records and medications.

While licences are available throughout the country to implement DXC's MedChart medications management solution, of the five Midland DHBs only Taranaki has implemented the system in inpatient wards.

Great, another regional solution for a bit of the health service that wonlt integrate with primary care or community pharmacy. National comprehensive solution please. If we added up the money that the 20+ DHBs spend on this stuff we could do so much more...
