Chris O'Brien Lifehouse chooses MetaVision for critical care
ICU specialist iMDsoft has won a bid to install its MetaVision clinical information system in the critical care and perioperative units at the Chris O'Brien Lifehouse cancer centre in Sydney.
MetaVision, which last year was selected by NSW Health to be installed in all ICUs in NSW public hospitals, is also used in six Queensland public hospitals and is being rolled out at the Royal Brisbane and Women's, Princess Alexandra and Royal Children's hospitals in Brisbane.
It is also in use at the Canberra Hospital and Calvary Hospital in the ACT, and Macquarie University Hospital and Sydney Adventist Hospital in Sydney.
The $260 million Lifehouse, which is situated at the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital campus in Camperdown, opened its doors to patients last November and includes an integrative medicine centre called the Lifehouse LivingRoom.
The next phase of the centre's development will see surgery and ICU open this year and next. MetaVision will be implemented as a full-featured clinical information system in ICU and anaesthesia and will include iMDsoft’s new cross-patient management functionality, which enables tracking and prioritising of activities across care units.
MetaVision is interoperable with most of the leading hospital information systems and is able to capture information from the vast range of medical devices used in ICU. It also has advanced medication management capability and minute-by-minute patient data collection and display.
It also interfaces with the Australian and New Zealand Intensive Care Society (ANZICS) reporting requirements for automatic data submission.
In a statement, Lifehouse CIO Anne Marie Hadley said the organisation was investing in state of the art clinical information systems to support care delivery.
“We chose to implement the MetaVision clinical information system for intensive care and anaesthesia as it provides us with a flexible, data-rich information system at the point of care and will evolve with our organisational needs for the long term,” Ms Hadley said.
