Integrated electronic medical record (ieMR)

Replacing paper-based clinical charts, the integrated electronic Medical Record (ieMR) solution allows healthcare professionals to simultaneously access and update patient information. Vital signs are automatically uploaded to these records, triggering early warning alerts if a patient's condition deteriorates.

The ieMR delivers an integrated suite of digital health care services that improve safety, efficiency and quality in clinical workflow processes.

Benefits of the ieMR

The ieMR has many benefits, including:

  • Real time patient information when and where it is needed
  • Safer, more reliable care
  • Less paperwork, more time with patients
  • Powerful clinical and management data
  • World class clinical care and research
  • Improved efficiency.

In June 2018, a PwC study of ieMR benefits showed $181.9 million financial and economic benefits have been achieved across patient quality and safety, operational service improvement and direct financial savings at the Princess Alexandra, Mackay Base, Cairns, Townsville and Queensland Children's Hospitals.
