Realising the Benefits from Electronic Medicines Management


Medications Management is an important facet of eHealth yet to be fully realised. It’s a complex area with the potential to deliver significant benefits in terms of health outcomes, health system savings and national productivity. The recent recommendation to move to an opt-out model for the PCEHR is dependent on the inclusion of minimum viable record that includes current medications.

ASE worked with CHIK Services to develop and release a shared vision, lessons learnt and value map for eMM (eMedications Management) in hospital settings.

The whitepaper is an output from the eMM workshop at CHIK’s Health-e-Nation Leadership Summit, held in March 2014 and supported by Intersystems. The workshop, jointly facilitated by Katharina Redford, Chief Operating Officer, South West Alliance for Rural Health (SWARH) and Richard Taggart, ASE Consulting Australia, was sponsored by InterSystems. Realising the Benefits from eMedications Management provides all those actively involved in eMM with a visual understanding of the flow and dependencies of key initiatives, processes and changes that underpin the achievement of benefits from eMM implementations. Enquiries relating to the whitepaper can be directed to ASE Support HiRes copies suitable for printing are also available from Support. Download your Low-res copy here
