Testing, testing… 1, 2, 3

We want the Electronic Medical Record (EMR) system to be reliable and secure, while meeting our operational needs.

To ensure this happens, our EMR testing team, made up of clinical application analysts, doctors, nurses, allied health, pharmacists, administration staff, and IT colleagues, is putting the system through its paces.

The team of over 50 people are working through a rigorous testing regime to find and resolve errors in the system.

What does testing involve?

The team has designed a comprehensive testing plan that occurs over four key phases. Each phase tests specific patient journeys across different clinical specialties to make sure the system is safe and fit for purpose. The testing also covers the systems that will link to the EMR.

Testing is due to be completed in May 2019.
