Introducing our new EMR website!

Northern Health announced the beginning of our Electronic Medical Record (EMR) program in November 2020.

Since then, the team has been busy designing our EMR clinical workflows with our subject matter experts. Alongside this activity, the team has been collaborating with Public Affairs on a new website designed for staff across Northern Health to access the latest information about our EMR and have one single source of truth for all things EMR.

Today, we are excited to launch this new website: emr.nh.org.au.

Over the journey of our EMR program, you will see information and resources grow. Closer to training in June 2022, you will have access to many learning tools and resources (in addition to links to the LMS).

Wanda Stelmach, Chief Medical Officer and EMR Sponsor, acknowledged the work of the EMR team to bring this website to life.

“I’m so impressed with the engagement of all staff in the EMR project but particularly by the dedication shown by our EMR team, led by Trish Aldridge,” Wanda said.

“Everyone has a real desire to develop an exceptional EMR that addresses our needs. I encourage all staff to visit the new EMR website and add it to your phone. It is an amazing resource and communication portal developed by our own EMR team with your input – well done, EMR team!” Wanda added.

While the team hope that all staff will visit the EMR site, they have also developed content specifically for people who are very involved in the EMR such as subject matter experts, champions and managers.

In coming months, information will be added in preparation for trainers and super users. Thanks to everyone who kindly agreed to be photographed for this new website, as these photos bring the website to life – keep visiting as the team will change these regularly!

Vanessa Reid, Chief Nursing Informatics Officer, is excited about the new site.

“I look forward to using the website and it will be handy to have one trusted, central place to refer staff to the latest information. It will be useful after training too for reference information and support,” Vanessa said.
