We are exploring all options as part of ensuring we can continue to deliver care to our patients and community safely. We are investigating options like adding staff or reducing surgeries or clinics as long as this is safe. Service demand will be a key focus of the EMR Phase 2.1 Operations Implementation Committee which commenced in February.

There have been additional staffing resources  approved as part of the EMR Phase 2.1 devices business case. This includes additional Service Desk staff, as well as on the floor support for staff. 

The Digital Health Team are working with the Western Health Executive and the New Footscray Hospital Team on the optimal timeline for the EMR Phase 2.2 development and implementation.
