New technology provides better care

Advancing our care through technology.

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 here. By combining all patient information in one electronic place, we can ensure the best and most efficient care.

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. 

Sydney Children’s Hospitals Network has been a state leader in this area and is continuing to push the boundaries of safe and coordinated 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 is improving 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.

The EMM Project, is live at The Children’s Hospital at Westmead, the first paediatric hospital to implement this complex system in Australia is an outstanding example of technology saving lives.
