The Concord Repatriation General Hospital (The Concord) is a 750 bed teaching hospital with the University of Sydney. The initial EMR rollout occurred for this site prior to HPA becoming involved. The opportunity for the ICU project came about through Dr. Mark Kol and his unique requirements for the carts. DT Research + HPA’s solution was applauded, and the 24-inch DT 594BU Medical-Cart Computer was a success. Through trials, it was found that the 24-inch monitor was required for the applications used within the ICU environment. 13 ICU Carts with 24-inch Medical-Cart Computer have been supplied.
Main applications used there are Powerchart, web browser for hospital intranet (hospital policies, procedures, MIMs online) They also use PDF viewer and office apps for writing patient discharge letters at point of care. eMedications is coming along with a NSW state-wide based Clinical Information System for Intensive Care Units.
