Parkville precinct reschedules Epic EMR go-live for August

Melbourne's Parkville precinct will go live with its $124 million electronic medical record on August 8, having been forced to postpone the original May launch date due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

Melbourne Health, the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre and the Royal Women’s Hospital are joining the Royal Children’s Hospital in using the EMR from US firm Epic. RCH went live in 2016 and its emergency department module is now in use at Royal Melbourne Hospital's ED.
