STARS align for ieMR go-live at Metro North’s new rehab hospital

Brisbane’s Metro North Hospital and Health Service opened its new Surgical, Treatment and Rehabilitation Service (STARS) in February, a brand new 182-bed digital ready hospital on the Herston campus that opened live with the full stack of the statewide Cerner integrated electronic medical record (ieMR).

The new hospital, built as a public private partnership and specifically designed to not only offer much needed rehabilitation services for Metro North but also for low acuity surgical patients to take the pressure off surgical waiting lists, is also the first in Queensland to integrate Masimo’s medical devices with the ieMR.

The hospital is also using Cerner’s Enterprise Scheduling Management (ESM) solution to handle referrals from not just Metro North but other HHSs, and to help with patient load through Queensland Health’s Surgery Connect program, which contracts with the private sector to deliver elective surgical services.
