AusBN – Bendigo Health has awarded Sláinte Healthcare with a contract to implement its Vitro software as the digital medical record in the new hospital.
The project will pave the way for the US$630 million hospital development to become paperless in less than 12 months.
Sláinte Healthcare has already established paperless hospitals at Calvary Health Care and the Chris O’Brien Lifehouse Centre in New South Wales.
Andrew Murphy, Sláinte Healthcare CEO, said: “Bendigo Health is a forward thinking organisation that understands the important role that technology plays in delivering a world-class healthcare service for patients.
“Our unrivalled experience working in this area enables us to implement the software rapidly and ensure immediate user adoption and instant clinical impact.
“With Vitro, we are looking forward to delivering a range of benefits for both patients and clinicians at Bendigo including improving clinical access to patient information, increasing the security of information, financial efficiencies and data protection.”
