ACT Health rolls out Epic solution in a hurry for Phase 1a vaccinations

ACT Health has gone live with a full version of the Epic electronic medical record 18 months earlier than scheduled to help manage COVID-19 vaccinations for the ACT public health system.

Nursing staff administering the vaccines are using Epic’s Rover smartphone app on Spectralink Versity handsets, with data from Epic and the territory’s iPM patient administration system then uploaded to the Australian Immunisation Register as a manual file.

The plan is to work with Services Australia to implement uploads through APIs. And while bookings are still being done by phone, in the next week or two ACT Health plans to go live with an online booking system using Epic’s MyChart patient portal, which has been branded as MyDHR in the ACT.
