HIC 2019: Rural NSW LHDs develop single formulary for eMeds roll-out

eHealth NSW plans to roll out its Cerner electronic medications management (eMeds) system to 115 rural sites by the end of 2019, a large increase on the 18 sites across the six rural local health districts (LHDs) originally planned for the same timeframe.

The NSW rural eMeds project has also seen a single rural medicines formulary developed in parallel to the implementation with the aim of reducing unwarranted variation in medicines prescribed and administered in rural settings.
