Fiona Stanley committee calls on minister to come clean on clinical ICT

A parliamentary committee that has been investigating problems with the operation of ICT services at Perth's Fiona Stanley Hospital (FSH) has called on WA Minister for Health Kim Hames to report to parliament on the roll-out of digital medical records throughout the state, along with the implementation of a closed loop medications management system at FSH and the stability of its paging system.

The committee also recommended that the WA Department of Health add an acknowledgement of receipt function to its Notification and Clinical Summaries (NaCS) application for discharge summaries following the distressing death of one patient, and took a swipe at WA Health for its failure to provide relevant information to the committee on the performance of ICT at the hospital.
