9:00 AM The Bullet Proof Method for Digital Hospital Integration: Tools and Methodology to Successfully Design and Implement Integrated Solutions in a Fully Digital Hospital

Hervey Bay Private Hospital, Australia’s first fully digital hospital, successfully integrated medical equipment, clinical solutions, an EMR and a host of other ICT solutions in an Australian first to achieve HIMSS Stage 6 upon opening.

The Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre (VCCC) was an innovative and fully integrated digital hospital built ready to implement an EMR after opening. The Victorian Heart Hospital is being designed to be Victoria’s first fully digital hospital, using the lessons learned from Hervey Bay and VCCC.

In this practical and engaging workshop, you will have the opportunity to learn how Rod Sprenger, the Technology Lead for each of these projects, applied common sense, practical integration design methodology and strategies to bring about successful outcomes in these iconic Australian digital hospitals, and gain his perspective on how the disasters of non-integration can be avoided.

  • Integration 101 - The steps to designing bulletproof integration
  • Key considerations when building integration in digital hospitals
  • A practical example of how to communicate when we all speak different languages
