Global Health deploys e-PAS, signs agreement with ACT Health

Two Australian hospitals have implemented Global Health’s patient administration system (e-PAS), the company has announced.

The hospitals, based in Victoria and NSW, are upgrading from their current legacy Bourke Johnson System.

Global Health said the upgrade will streamline the flow of information through the hospitals, both of which have been long-time clients of the company.

The e-PAS system incorporates patient management, administrative functions, medical record management, appointment scheduling and management of emergency patients’ records.

The system is also compatible with the ReferralNet Claims service, which can interface with other patient administrative systems or billing systems, to submit claims to Medicare, Department of Veterans’ Affairs and health funds via Medicare’s ECLIPSE system.

Meanwhile, Global Health has also announced the signing of a three-year contract with ACT Health for the ongoing development and support of their Mental Health Assessment Generation and Information Collection system (MHAGIC).

The system, which is already used by 20 per cent of GP divisions across Australia, utilises templates to collect client information, which can then be automatically published into report form.
