My Health Record ED pilot a test bed for national digital health strategy
A literature review and environmental scan are currently underway to lay the groundwork for a two-year project looking at how the My Health Record can be used in hospital emergency departments to allow ED clinicians to access patient data such as medications and allergies in real time.
The project is one of six 'test beds' outlined in the National Digital Health Strategy and will involve EDs in the Nepean Blue Mountains and Northern Queensland Primary Health Networks (PHNs), where the vast bulk of the local population has a My Health Record, and will eventually lead to the development of a model that other hospitals can use to introduced the record to ED workflow.
