NSW's 10-year strategy on track as Australia's largest hospital goes Paper-lite

Sydney's 1000-bed Westmead Hospital has successfully completed the roll-out of the 'Paper-lite' project, implementing the Cerner electronic medical record known in NSW as eMR2 and taking the number of hospitals now using the system to 145.

The state's electronic medications management (eMeds) system has also rolled out to 13 hospitals out of a target of 58, and the new electronic record for intensive care (eRIC) system, which uses the MetaVision solution from iMDsoft, is set to go live at seven hospitals before the end of the year, having been piloted at Port Macquarie Base Hospital last October.

eHealth NSW CEO/CIO Zoran Bolevich told a conference in Sydney yesterday that the state was one year into its 10-year eHealth strategy, which aims to roll out a number of core clinical systems in addition to completed projects such as the Community Health and Outpatients Clinics (CHOC) project, which extended the eMR to out-of-hospital healthcare provision.
