Improve clinical decision support tools for healthcare staff working in hospitals.

Project Objective

This project aims to help clinical staff make better real time decisions when caring for patients. Existing decision support systems currently in use in hospitals come with limited capabilities when it comes to real-time decision support, mobility, and user experience.

The research team will work with Alcidion’s Miya Precision system, which is used by Sydney’s Royal Prince Alfred Hospital and by Wagga Base Hospital in southern NSW, to bolster and improve these decision support tools. 

Alcidion’s system consolidates data from existing records, such as the NSW Health Cerner Millennium Electronic Medical Record (eMR) system and provides clinicians with proactive notifications of critical issues. 

Staged across a three-year program, researchers will evaluate and optimise the implementation of these decision support tools. mobile apps and dashboards as a means to augment the eMR system.
