Clicky, clunky and cumbersome: EPAS to be overhauled

An independent review of South Australia's much criticised Enterprise Patient Administration System (EPAS) has found that the program requires a fundamental overhaul and should not go on as is, with the electronic medical record and PAS elements of the system to be split and the billing module to be dumped and a replacement found.

The South Australian government says it will “transition” from calling it the EPAS project and split it into two projects with an upgrade to the current products – the Sunrise EMR and the Allscripts PAS – and trial them at two sites before making a final decision on whether to continue with the Allscripts suite.
