Update regarding Digital Hospital

Update regarding Digital Hospital

Good afternoon

As you would be aware due to the upcoming election we have had to adjust our planned Digital Go Live dates until after caretaker period. The new dates are outlined below.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their exceptional work in ensuring our hospitals are well prepared for the transition to Digital and the support in adjusting to the new dates. I would also like to thank you for the warm welcome I have received whilst walking around the hospital. I am impressed with your dedication and the excellent services we provide to our communities.

The new Go Live dates for Logan and Beaudesert Hospital are:

- ESM Scheduling for Logan Hospital – 20 November
- Digital Go Live, Logan Hospital - 4 December 2017
- Digital Go Live, Beaudesert Hospital, including ESM scheduling – 10 January 2018

The sequence has been developed following extensive consultation with clinicians and hospital management. The staggered approach enables concentrated support to be provided to each area as it goes live. A 24/7 Command Centre will be in place and will provide ongoing support for all areas throughout Go Live and several weeks beyond.

Please speak with your manager if you have any questions in regard to your role or arrangements for rosters during Go Live and the holiday period.

Thank you for your continued support, optimism and dedication in preparation for this step in Logan and Beaudesert Digital Hospital journey.
