Congratulations to all of the DHIN members involved in the successful bid for funding from the Australian Digital Health Agency, with the Western Sydney Cardiology Care Test Bed. The Cardiology Test Bed project is one of 15 new projects that uses information gathered from consenting individuals to examine how My Health Record can be a system that supports the delivery of improved healthcare.
The Western Sydney Cardiology Care Test Bed team is comprised of members from The University of Sydney, Westmead Hospital, Western Sydney Local Health District, WentWest PHN and eHealth NSW. This project will investigate how My Health Record can support delivery of a novel model of care through Rapid Access Cardiology Clinics (RACCs); how it can support communication through healthcare providers and the patient; and support the identification of the patients who most need the RACCs.
Congratulations to the team:
Professor Clara Chow, Professor Tim Usherwood, Professor Tim Shaw, Professor Naren Gunja, Professor Garry Jennings AO, Associate Professor Walter Kmet, Professor Jonathan Morris AM, Dr Monique Hines, Dr Felicity Gallimore and Dr Amith Shetty.
