SCHN integrates patient content into Cerner EMR through Oneview app
The Sydney Children's Hospital Network (SCHN) has gone live with full EMR integration of its new Connect app, allowing messages sent by patients to be directly accessible by the clinical team within Cerner's PowerChart module and patients to receive instructions and information on their personal device.
In what is thought to be the first direct patient content to be integrated into an EMR in Australia – and perhaps even worldwide – SCHN worked with Irish patient infotainment vendor Oneview to co-design the app, which is now live in all departments at the Children's Hospital at Westmead.
Oneview Connect was first piloted last year with some patient groups to test functionality such as SMS communication between patients and clinicians, appointments rescheduling and notifications of events. The full version integrated with the EMR has now been launched throughout the hospital, with plans to also roll it out at Sydney Children's Hospital at Randwick in about a year.
