St John of God Midland opens on time and budget with Emerging EMR

The $360 million St John of God Midland Public and Private Hospitals have opened on time, on budget and with the minimum of fuss in Perth's east, taking the place of the aged Swan District Hospital and offering new services to the region such as day oncology and a high-dependency coronary care unit.

It will also serve as a testbed for the roll-out of Emerging Systems' EHS clinical information system to other St John of God hospitals around the country and will link to both the national My Health Record (MyHR, formerly PCEHR) and WA Health's internal systems, with secure messaging of discharge summaries to local GPs also high on the priority list.

Sorry but I don't agree that this is an EMR, it looks more to be an expanded PAS system that links to the PCeHR as the medical record
