Justice Health’s goal is specifically to provide a critical platform for the Justice Health electronic health system’s (JHeHS) migration to a computerised record of a patient’s medical history related to the clinical care received while in JH&FMHN. This will contain a subset of information previously held in paper medical records including patient details, medical conditions, appointments, pathology results, electronic forms and medicines prescribed. The data is now held in one consolidated place and available state-wide as opposed to being held in multiple paper files and stand-alone electronic registers.
The Orion Health solution will enable the replacement of manual sharing of information between JH&FMHN and other health care providers by implementing applications that will support the patient journey and, in turn, aid clinicians in their decision making processes, while improving communication between clinicians by providing information at the point of care.
Justice Health is also digitising paper based health records and manual processes such as faxing and posting of pathology results.
