ACT Health looks to boost EMRAM score through digital health strategy

The ACT government has released its 10-year digital health strategy, the centrepiece of which is the development of an integrated digital health record that will act as a single digital source of truth for clinical information and be accessible by clinicians in inpatients, outpatients and the community.

The ACT will also aim to boost its electronic medical record adoption model score, which it calculates is currently sitting at 1.5 out of a possible score of 7, and focus on implementing standards to allow integration with national digital health services to support wider sharing of information.

The plan describes an incredibly complex syste of clinical tools in the hospital, multiple portals and a mix of sysmes within ACT health and a bevy of private providers out there. It is hugely more complex than anything MyHealthRecord required.

A very significant component is also the fact that every team member in their descirbed plan is an ACT Health employee working on a lovely Public Servant wage.
Except for the GPs who are expected to spend time looking up things on portals, taking part in teleconferences , etc. The vast majority of which is unpaid charity work
