UPDATE I Blacktown eMeds roll-out
12 Apr 2017
The eMeds program has now been live at Blacktown Hospital for nearly six weeks!
The electronic medication management (eMEds) system supports the improved quality, safety and effectiveness of medication management in our hospitals.
The roll-out at Blacktown was the fastest roll-out in Australian history, taking just three weeks to implement - it normally takes from three to eight months to roll-out.
The program has now been rolled out right across the hospital, including to outpatient areas and the emergency department.
Congratulations to everyone involved!
eMeds will be rolled-out at Mount Druitt and Auburn hospitals later this year, followed by Cumberland and Westmead in 2018.
