EMR Infusion Enhancement

EMR Infusion Enhancement went live across all Western Health sites on 1st December 2020.

This implementation was an important step in standardising workflows for infusion ordering, administration and documentation across the EMR sites to align with Best Care.

The online infusions lessons have been incorporated into EMR general training via WeLearn. If you only need to complete Infusions training, please contact Barbara Lennon, EMR Learning & Development Manager –  Barbara.lennon@wh.org.au
