BRISBANE, Australia--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--iMDsoft®, a leader in clinical information systems, announced that NSW Health has signed an agreement to install MetaVision® throughout the state’s adult, pediatric and neonatal ICU beds.
“MetaVision is designed with a deep level of granularity to support complex ICU environments. We look forward to bringing NSW Health the clinical, financial and operational benefits reported by our critical care customers globally.”
With a successful track record of regional projects worldwide and a unique architecture that enables efficient software deployments across health networks, MetaVision is increasingly becoming the vendor of choice for governments and hospital chains. NSW Health, the biggest public health system in Australia, sought a fully automated Clinical Information System (CIS) for their health network that would enable them to continue to advance the level of care provided to their patients and meet the unique requirements of their ICU environment. Following a broad vendor selection process, NSW Health decided that MetaVision - a proven, best-in-class CIS designed for critical care - was the best choice for their needs.
NSW Health anticipates several key benefits as a result of the implementation of MetaVision, including:
- Reduced mortality rate
- Improved patient care and safety, including faster and more accurate diagnoses and fewer errors
- Increase in number of patients treated due to more timely care and reduced length of stay
- Increased clinician satisfaction due to better workflow and access to information
- Improved data quality and reduced reporting burden
- Cost savings as a result of fewer tests and state-wide IT consolidation
MetaVision creates an electronic medical record for ICUs, offering minute-by-minute patient information collection and display. The system’s medication management and advanced decision support promote the delivery of best practices, protocols, and regulatory requirements. MetaVision interoperates with a range of hospital information systems and medical devices, and interfaces with the Australian and New Zealand Intensive Care Society (ANZICS) reporting requirements for automatic data submission. The system provides a large data repository enabling detailed clinical data reporting, facilitating quality improvements and research.
“We are honored to have been chosen by NSW Health to lead the automation of the critical care environment statewide. Our extensive experience with multi-site deployments, including the Queensland Health network, makes us an ideal fit for a project of this scope and complexity,” said David Sides, CEO of iMDsoft. “MetaVision is designed with a deep level of granularity to support complex ICU environments. We look forward to bringing NSW Health the clinical, financial and operational benefits reported by our critical care customers globally.”
