Keep practising in the EMR!

We are only six weeks away from the Electronic Medical Record (EMR) going live! Training is full steam ahead and we have more than 1000 staff trained.

Staff who have completed training will be able to access the Train Domain (a mock-up version of the EMR) to practice. This is set up so you can practice the new skills you have learned in training.

To practice, simply follow the instructions and use the practice logins provided on the EMR website. We have a list of scenarios available in the participation guides to support you in this process. You are more than welcome to come up with your own scenarios as well!  In training, we aim to cover as much content as we can to equip you with the go live. However, you might need more practice on workflows that are specific to your area of work to feel even more confident in using the EMR.

The EMR team is also running dedicated practice sessions across Epping, Broadmeadows, and Bundoora, where a trainer will be present to answer any questions that you might have.

Annabel Milonas, Director of Education – Nursing and Midwifery, is supportive of the practice sessions. “After attending training, the key for me is to now continue doing the practice sessions and I encourage all educators to do the same and promote in your areas with your super users helping as well. This is how we can strive for adoption when the EMR goes live,” says Annabel.

A famous blue fish once said, ‘just keep swimming’. With the EMR going live in less than 50 days, we need to ‘just keep practising!’
