Whanganui says new clinical systems will improve referral management

Whanganui District Health Board is working on a pilot to provide a safer way to view orthopaedic referrals which it hopes will help avoid a repeat of the tragic death of an 80-year-old woman, in part due to the poor triage of referrals including a handwritten one from a GP.

Whanganui DHB has also rolled out new clinical information systems such as Orion Health's Clinical Portal and DXC's webPAS, replacing the aged OraCare PAS, which is says will significantly enhance referral management and visibility.
