  2. 2.  Currently, Macquarie Health Corporation has 12 hospitals in NSW (9 hospitals) and Victoria (3 hospitals)  NSW Hospitals: Delmar, Eastern Suburbs, Manly Waters, President Private, Minchinbury, Sydney Private, Holroyd, Longueville, NSW Eye Centre, PAPH  Over 60 years in the Health Care space  Contact: Dr T.

  3. 3. MHC has 9 hospitals and wishes to solve the following problems: 1. Electronic archiving of medical records and online coding 2. E-referral direct from the surgeons to our hospitals 3. Electronic bed side monitoring (nurses notes) 4. Electronic discharge summary back to referring GP and surgeon
  4. 4.  Macquarie currently has a web based patient pre- admission system.  The surgical component of the pre-admission process is currently paper based.  An electronic E-referral system would facilitate more a efficient pre-admission process including theatre booking.
  5. 5.  This includes nursing notes and other bedside monitoring parameters such as temperature, BP etc.  Macquarie hospitals currently do this on paper which contributes to the size of the patient medical record.  An electronic system capable of capturing this data and running on modern tablet devices would be highly desirable.
  6. 6.  Currently discharge summaries are given to the patient when they leave the hospital to take to their doctor.  The referring and admitting doctors are both captured during by the admission software.  The process would be much improved if the discharge summary could be created in electronic format and securely sent to the relevant providers.
