Logan and Beaudesert Hospitals ramp up for Digital

More than 250 clinical staff from Logan and Beaudesert will meet this week as part of the of Digital Hospital Clinical Workflow Validation sessions.  

The sessions, held at Beenleigh Events Centre, are designed to identify any particular workflow issues with regard to the digital hospital system, so they can be resolved in the lead up to Go Live in November 2017.

Executive Director of Logan Bayside Health Network, Dr Jacinta Powell opened today’s session by saying that both Logan and Beaudesert Hospitals are absolutely in the right position to move forward with this project.

“We are lucky to have the experience and expertise of digital hospital staff from previous Queensland digital hospital implementations,” Dr Powell said.

“This is a very significant and exciting time for both facilities.

“Logan Hospital will be the first medical facility in Australia to implement Digital Hospital in one stage, and Beaudesert Hospital will be the first rural facility in Australia to implement Digital Hospital.

“I thank staff representing their areas or clinical streams to come to these sessions with enthusiasm, commitment and a can-do attitude.”
