WA Health exploring the market for potential statewide EMR

The Western Australian Department of Health has issued a request for information (RFI) from EMR vendors on the feasibility and potential options for implementing a contemporary electronic medical record across the state.

A statewide EMR was one of the major recommendations of the Sustainable Health Review, which called for a phased roll-out of an EMR across the WA health system by July 2029.
