11:30 AM Case Study: The Metro South Digital Hospital Project – Delivering a Digital Health Service in 3 Years
Metro South Hospital and Health Service (MSSHS) facilities include five major hospitals and several health centres throughout the Brisbane south, Logan, Redlands and Scenic Rim regions. They serve an estimated population of 1 million people, and employ more than 14,000 staff.
In mid 2018 Metro South will complete its transformation to becoming Australia’s first fully digital health service, delivering significant measurable improvements in health outcomes for our patients, increased productivity for our clinicians, and substantial operational efficiencies for our health service. With the entire health service now live with the ieMR, there are already early benefits being documented, including better outcomes achieved for patients, increased productivity and support for clinicians and predicted greater efficiencies delivered for the overall health service.
In this session, Noelene and Melanie will discuss how the project approached this significant clinical transformation and preview early benefits in more detail.
