NT in build phase for CCSRP with Katherine Hospital to go live in 2019
The Northern Territory will pilot its new electronic medical record at Katherine Hospital and its clinics in October next year, before a wider roll-out of the $259 million core clinical system renewal project (CCSRP) by region in the following two years.
Built on InterSystems' TrakCare technology, the CCSRP is currently in the solution build phase and is currently being put through several rounds of configuration workshops involving hundreds of clinicians, including acute care staff as well as those working in the primary and remote community sectors.
NT Health is also rolling out an enterprise master patient index (EMPI) from NextGate that will integrate with TrakCare and help ensure that the Territory achieves its goal of “one client, one record”, and has recently gone to tender for the redevelopment of its ageing enterprise data warehouse (EDW) to integrate TrakCare data with existing legacy systems.
