TechnologyOne tidies Epworth's books


The adoption of TechnologyOne's OneHealth software has given Epworth HealthCare a consistent view of its eight hospitals.

Not-for-profit Epworth HealthCare operates eight hospitals in Victoria with 1,200 beds and 5000, with a ninth scheduled to open in 2016.

Thanks to TechnologyOne's OneHealth, it was able to open its two most recent hospitals - Camberwell and Hawthorn - without increasing the number of facilities management staff.

Group engineering and facilities manager Neil Caughey said the software allowed consistent corrective and preventative maintenance and asset compliance across the organisation.

"We have an obligation to ensure that every single asset performs the way it should, and that the asset is safe to use. TechnologyOne has given us visibility across that process and consistency. We're now all working off the same maintenance schedules," he said.

A web-based interface allows all staff to directly raise work requests, thus streamlining processes.

The software has also proved its value to the biomedical engineering department at Epworth.

Group biomedical engineering manager Valerie Bommarito noted the way OneHealth could be configured to suit the department's requirements and to streamline its business processes.

"The business intelligence tools have been really useful in helping us manage our workflow," she said.

"In Biomed, we've created six BI dashboards to help us track work requests and equipment. From a managerial perspective, these dashboards have given me a way to see exactly what's going on from my desktop. I can see which work orders are getting completed, and which are outstanding, and it has helped me to manage the department more effectively and efficiently."

And the integrated asset and contract management systems mean Ms Bommarito knows which assets are under contract and exactly how much they cost. "Being able to capture the information has really helped a lot," she said.

Similarly, integration between supply chain and financials generates accurate profit and loss statements and ensures costs are applied to the correct assets.

OneHealth covers financials, supply chain, assets, payments, governance, risk management, planning and budgeting.
