Digital Health

Through digital technology, West Moreton Health will be transforming the way we deliver healthcare to the community we serve. A key component of this will be the introduction of the Integrated Electronic Medical Record (ieMR) as part of a broader roll-out across hospitals and health services in Queensland.

Integrated Electronic Medical Record (ieMR)

The ieMR creates a single patient health record, which can be securely accessed by all health staff involved in the care of a patient. This new technology and software promotes clinical collaboration between colleagues and partners across our services and region, and improves patient safety and coordination of care.

With each visit to the health service, a comprehensive medical picture can be built throughout the patient’s or consumers’ life, which can be used to support diagnosis and care. The new technology also means that staff can spend less time completing paperwork and more time with patients.

Key dates

The ieMR will go live in November 2018.

A clinical approach for successful implementation

Multidisciplinary teams of clinical advisors, business experts and Support Crew are reviewing and validating the thinking, design and changes to ensure the ieMR solution is best configured for West Moreton’s needs.

Health staff will receive the information, training and support they need to work with the new digital systems, so from the go live in November, our staff will be ready, confident and proficient. The diagram below illustrates our staff’s training journey.
