SCHN harnessing EMR data to improve care for paediatric oncology patients
Sydney Children's Hospital Network is running a proof of concept study analysing real-time data from its electronic medical record on paediatric oncology patients and their risk of infection.
The aim is to see if it can assist clinicians in their decision-making on whether patients presenting with febrile neutropenia need to stay in hospital for a dose of antibiotics or if they can be better cared for at home. The hope is to also apply the process to bronchiolitis and sepsis in future.
