Australia's Chris O'Brien Lifehouse Deploys MEDITECH's Oncology Solution
Australia's Chris O’Brien Lifehouse recently implemented MEDITECH’s 6.x Oncology and Pharmacy solutions, enabling the world-class cancer hospital to move from paper to electronic ordering for chemotherapeutic medications and treatment plans.
The addition of these products rounds out the Sydney hospital’s MEDITECH EMR, making Lifehouse the first in Australia to implement MEDITECH’s advanced clinicals, including clinical decision support with evidence- and experience-based content. The hospital is also incorporating 330 treatment protocols.
Professor Michael Boyer, Lifehouse CMO, project sponsor, and project champion, oversaw solution testing and implementation from start to finish.
“We now have a more accurate and complete view of the patient chart,” he says. “The tools provided in the MEDITECH solution give our clinicians more information, helping them to deliver the safest quality care.”
Lifehouse serves more than 40,000 patients every year for screening, diagnosis, and treatment, using the latest technology in a modern, purpose-built cancer hospital.
