Back to the drawing board for Parkville precinct EMR

The much-lobbied-for Parkville electronic medical record project, which would see Royal Melbourne Hospital, the Royal Women’s Hospital and the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre join the Royal Children's Hospital in implementing an Epic solution to form a precinct-wide EMR, failed to secure funding in this week's Victorian state budget.

The state government provided $5 million in last year's budget towards scoping the needs of the three hospitals to introduce an EMR. It is understood that the business case developed centred around the Epic EMR solution, which has been successfully rolled out at RCH and recently achieved Level 6 on the HIMSS EMR adoption model.
