In 2018, we completed an ambitious project to fully digitise our four major metropolitan hospitals and one rural hospital.
In a digital hospital, all patient medical records are electronic. Clinicians have instant, real-time information about patients at the point of care through digital workstations instead of paper files.

Metro South Health is Queensland's largest health service by population and employs more than 13,000 staff. We provide public hospital and health services to patients in the Brisbane southside, Logan, Redlands and Scenic Rim regions.
