Almost 24 months after the go-live of the shared Electronic Medical Record (EMR), the Parkville Precinct Health Services continue to prioritise Digital Health and Transformation.
This year, the precinct engaged the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) to validate their digital maturity after the implementation of their shared Parkville EMR.
The Parkville Precinct health services completed both their Inpatient and Outpatient Electronic Medical Record Adoption Model (EMRAM) assessments – an 8-stage model aimed to measure clinical outcomes, patient engagement and clinician use of EMR technology.
All four hospital received a stage 6 validation for both their inpatient and outpatient EMRAM, with RCH also receiving a stage 7 for its outpatient EMRAM.
Please join Laura, Sofie and Matt to discuss the journey to level 6 & 7 for the Parkville Precinct, focusing on the role of Health Information Managers in largescale EMR digital transformation initiatives. If you are working on, planning, or considering a transformation of your hospital’s healthcare records, you won’t want to miss this opportunity!

Health information is pivotal at the point-of-care for clinical management and service provision for our consumers, as well as for service monitoring, planning and management.
This Health Information Governance Framework has been developed to articulate the management of health information across NorthWestern Mental Health (NWMH)*. This framework acts as a footprint for the governance of health information across the organisational structures, partnerships, service settings and differing levels of health service digitisation.
With advancements in digital health across Victoria and Australia, appropriate governance of the collection, use and access of patient and consumer health information is more pertinent than ever to meet the growing demands for service delivery and service monitoring in a complex environment.
This is especially important for NWMH as services move to implement significant changes introduced for the mental health space in the very near future.
*NWMH is a public mental health service for people living in northern and western metropolitan Melbourne. Services are delivered through six programs spanning 32 sites across the northern and western suburbs of Melbourne in partnership with Melbourne Health, Northern Health, and Western Health
