Statewide EMR put on the table as WA Health confronts inconvenient truths
Investing in a statewide electronic medical record, closer ties with the Australian Digital Health Agency on the My Health Record roll-out and an immediate expansion of telehealth provision are among the preliminary recommendations from Western Australia's Sustainable Health Review in an interim report today.
The report says WA needs to confront some “inconvenient truths” about its health system, its sustainability and staff morale, including that its track record in the delivery of ICT “has led to large amounts of money spent in areas that has not necessarily supported the system” or improved health outcomes.
