Wynnum-Manly PCC getting ready to go digital

18 March 2022

Wynnum-Manly Primary Care Centre is going digital, with a go-live of a customised ieMR developed specifically to suit a primary care setting.

Project Manager Karen Davies said staff had been heavily involved in the customisation of ieMR,  working with the Project Team and software developers Cerner to ensure the version would complement the workflows at Wynnum-Manly PCC.

Karen said the list of benefits of going digital for staff and patients was long.

"It's great to see Wynnum-Manly PCC join the clinical community of Digital Hospitals in Metro South Health and across the state," she said.

"Clinicians will have access to instant, real-time patient information from across Metro South, as well as from digital facilities around Queensland with each patient's electronic record now travelling with them.

"That means no need to obtain charts from Medical Records and better collaboration between clinicians, and more linked up care for patients."

Karen said ieMR was a single source of truth for clinical documentation, medications, fluids, investigations, anaesthetics records and appointments with vital signs, radiology, medications and test results seamlessly integrated into the system.

"Clinicians also have access to early warning alerts in a medical emergency and improved patient safety with patients accurately identified through wristbands with unique barcodes."

Karen said it had been fantastic to have the clinicians from Wynnum PCC involved at every level of the project.

"We are looking forward to a smooth transition in May and positive outcomes for our patients."
