There is a powerful feeling in the PAH air as the anticipation for our greatest collective challenge builds. Everywhere I go there is an excited energy flowing through our corridors like I’ve never seen before.
From Tuesday 17 November, staff who have completed their Digital Hospital training will be able to start setting their preferences and favourites in the new look Electronic Medical Record (EMR) as a key step to get ready for Go Live.
We are expecting an announcement from the Health Minister today in Parliament noting our achievements to date. This is the first step to celebrating our outstanding success with the public, so stay tuned for more updates in coming weeks.
The PA Hospital is not known for sitting back and watching from the sidelines. We pride ourselves on the knowledge that we are leading the way in healthcare.
PAH Nursing Director of Surgery, Sean Birgan, is one person who knows just how challenging, yet valuable, programs like Digital Hospital can be, having been involved in our ongoing Magnet accreditation success.
Your first shift during Go Live is going to be exciting and daunting at the same time. Having been involved in many Digital Hospital implementations in the UK and Australia during the past fifteen years, Trina Adams, Queensland General Manager and Program Director from Cerner Corporation is well positioned to tell us what to expect.
