Statewide EMR, shared care plan key priorities in WA Health digital strategy

The West Australian government has released an ambitious 10-year digital health strategy for the state, highlighting a statewide electronic medical record as a key priority, along with electronic medications management and potentially a shared care platform to link primary and acute care in real time.

WA Health issued a request for information from EMR vendors on the feasibility of a statewide system in August following a recommendation by the Sustainable Health Review (SHR) final report, which has heavily influenced the digital health strategy.
