Providing the best and safest care for patients and families is our highest priority.
Our MEMORY Strategy is the cornerstone of this commitment, by building clinical information systems that support doctors, nurses, allied health teams and families to record all aspects of care electronically.
Electronic Medical Record (EMR)
The EMR is combines all patient information in one electronic place.
Patient records are now digitally available to your children’s care team across the Sydney Children’s Hospitals Network. Their EMR is their lifetime health file, allowing clinicians within our hospitals and beyond to provide the best, most appropriate care.
Electronic Medication Management (EMM)
Medications are a major part of the treatment of 80,000 sick children each year at The Children’s Hospital at Westmead.
The EMM project improves care by electronically tracking your child’s medication. This allows better communication within your child’s health care team and a much lower risk of medication errors.
EMM is currently live at The Children’s Hospital at Westmead.
