South Island paramedics given access to HealthOne on mobile devices
Paramedics from ambulance service St John have been given direct access to patient information via the HealthOne shared care record view on their portable electronic devices.
HealthOne stores patient information such as GP records, prescribed medications and test results for patients throughout the South Island and is accessible by GPs and community pharmacists. Hospital-based clinicians can access it through the Health Connect South (HCS) system.
According to the South Island Alliance, HealthOne has been available to St John’s clinical desk staff since 2017, but paramedics will now be able to access it remotely at the point of care.
