Macquarie University Hospital Opens Its Doors in June, with MetaVision Deployed Throughout Its Critical and Perioperative Units
BRISBANE, Australia--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- iMDsoft®, a global leader in clinical information systems, will implement the MetaVision® suite at Macquarie University Hospital (MUH) in Sydney, Australia. Macquarie’s brand new, state-of-the-art facility, alongside its Australian School of Advanced Medicine, will integrate clinical care, education, and research. MetaVision will be installed in the hospitals ORs, PACU beds, and ICU, supporting the continuum of care between the clinical departments.
MetaVision maintains a single database and patient record across ICUs, pre-op units, ORs, recovery units and general floors. Patient information from the entire hospital stay is presented in a single flowsheet spanning multiple units. This functionality allows healthcare professionals to plan medications during the intra-op period and subsequently manage and modify such medication plans in the PACU. It makes it possible to view vital signs, nursing observations, and lab results from the patient’s ICU stay once the patient is in the step-down or general care unit. A unique staging mechanism allows standardization across multiple departments, hospitals, and even entire health regions, while still offering the flexibility to adapt to unit-specific needs and workflows.
"We are witnessing a growing demand for clinical data continuum across the entire spectrum of high-acuity units, and for offerings that can provide an appropriate solution," said Phyllis Gotlib, CEO of iMDsoft. "MetaVision is uniquely positioned to answer this need and is successfully implemented in many of the world's leading medical institutions as a result. We are delighted that Macquarie is joining this elite group."
Macquarie University Hospital CEO Robert Glynn said that using the latest technology to deliver better health outcomes for patients and a superior working environment for medical staff was one of the Hospital’s key aims.
“The continuity of care provided by this system means our patients’ hospital stay will be safer and more enjoyable, and that’s what our medical experts are focused on – providing the best possible patient care.”
