State: Queensland

Status: Ongoing


Integrate analytics into the clinical workflows of Australia’s newest digital hospital, Surgical Treatment and Rehabilitation Service (STARS hospital).

Project objective

This project will develop a new and efficient capability for data extraction from electronic medical records, starting with Queensland’s integrated Electronic Medical Record (iEMR).

It aims to demonstrate and enhance data-extraction methods and to deliver real-time analytics to Australia’s largest health care service.

Using live analytics is essential when it comes to prioritising patient care and shifting from the current ‘break-fix’ healthcare model to a more sustainable ‘predict-prevent’ model. This project will pioneer this more desirable model in the commissioning of a sophisticated digital hospital.

If successful, this project will pave the way for Australian hospitals to increase their efficiency and improve care outcomes.
