  • Super User Survey

    Thank you to all those who took part in the Super User Survey. Your input is greatly appreciated, and it will play a crucial role in shaping the future engagement of EMR Super Users.

    If you haven’t already, we would love for you to participate in a brief survey to share your experiences and thoughts following the EMR Phase 2.1 Go-Live.

    Your feedback will be instrumental in developing the Super Users continuity plan. 

    Training updates

    The Digital Health Learning and Development team have been hard at work and Super Users are encouraged to let their colleagues know about these new updates. 

    Comprehensive Care IPOC 

    On Monday 3rd October, we will be using the Comprehensive Care IPOC as the single nursing care plan for all admitted adult patients. 

    Here is a 3-minute video on the workflow of initiating, documenting and updating your patient’s Comprehensive Care IPOC. 

    The Quick Reference Guide has also been updated for your reference. 

    EMR for Ward Nurses WeLearn has been updated 

    The “EMR for Ward Nurses” WeLearn module has been updated post EMR Phase 2.1 Go-Live. The lesson has a new look and contains new lessons – such as validating student nurse documentation. 

    Over the next few months, we will continue to update other EMR lessons on WeLearn – so stay tuned!

    Bacchus Marsh Melton Transition Update

    The Bacchus Marsh Melton Digital Health Transition Project is extending the Digital Health functionality currently used at Western Health’s Footscray, Sunshine, Williamstown and Sunbury sites to the Bacchus Marsh Melton (BMM) sites to aid the flow of healthcare information across the organisation and support seamless, safe and effective care. 

    The timeline for this rollout is currently being determined, but there will be opportunities for Super User support as we build up to the transition and throughout the Go-Live period. 

    Information sessions will commence in October at Melton and Bacchus Marsh and will provide a project overview and timeline, with a focus on plans for training and support. Key project contacts will be in attendance and will look forward to answering queries. The same information will be presented at each site. 

    • Wednesday 18th October, 2 – 3pm, Melton Health Hub – Conference Rooms 1 & 2 
    • Thursday 19th October, 2 – 3pm, Bacchus Marsh Hospital – Conference Room 


    More information on the BMM transition project is available on the Digital Health information site.
