WA budget: statewide EMR not on the near-term agenda
The statewide electronic medical record promised as part of Western Australia’s 10-year digital health strategy remains on the drawing board, with just $4.4 million allocated over the next few years towards planning for the initiative in today’s WA budget.
Instead, $38.1m has been allocated to rolling out the existing Opal digital medical record system at a further five new hospital sites.
