Royal Children’s Hospital EMR roll-out shows sustained reduction in mortality

The implementation of Epic's electronic medical record at Melbourne’s Royal Children’s Hospital (RCH) has been associated with a reduction in mortality rate that continues to be sustained over time, new research shows.

RCH has been monitoring clinical outcomes following the implementation of its Epic EMR in April 2016 and presented data at the Health Informatics Conference in Melbourne in 2019 that showed early evidence of a reduction in mortality rate of 25 per cent.

I hope it is a true reduction. The authors correctly say that causality is not certain.
