EMR – a strategic sustainable approach
12:30pm to 1:30pm, Wednesday 23rd September

Developing an effective Electronic Medical Record system is a long-term project that requires a strategic, sustainable approach to the choice and procurement of clinical and ICT systems as well as the hardware used to access those solutions. Effective change management is vital as well as partnering early with both industry and end users. This webinar explores different ways of driving digital transformation and development of EMR systems at health organisations in Australia and New Zealand.
