As part of its ongoing digital transformation, NSW Health has accelerated the rollout of the ambitious electronic medication management program, or eMeds, which aims to increase patient safety in the NSW public health system.
In one of the world’s largest projects of its kind, eMeds is now used in more than 160 health facilities across the state.
Some of the most notable facilities are the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital and Westmead Hospital, however, even in far-flung areas of the state patients have access to the same cutting-edge technology as those in Sydney.
In rural and regional NSW, eMeds supports about 17,000 clinicians, who care for more than 1.3 million patients annually.
