The Digitally Integrated Stroke Care (DISC) Project will address current barriers to the capture and use of quality data in the Integrated Electronic Medical Record (ieMR), by enhancing the application to reduce the data entry burden on clinical staff, and integrate data capture with clinical workflow processes.
Clinical stakeholders working in the digital hospital environment were consulted, and a Business Requirements Specification developed. From this, several component solutions have been identified. Currently the two priority ieMR enhancements have been drafted into technical enhancement specifications and provided to technical development resources. It is expected that the first solutions will be developed, tested and implemented by the end of 2017-2018 financial year.
Clinical Excellence Queensland’s Healthcare Innovation and Transformation Excellence Collaboration (HITEC) is coordinating the project on behalf of the Statewide Stroke Clinical Network.
