Bass Coast Health to benefit from MasterCare EMR

Global Health has celebrated yet another successful implementation of MasterCare Electronic Health Record (EMR). Bass Coast Health is the latest Victorian Community Health organisation to experience the benefits of a complete EMR solution.

As more Federally and State funded programs become available, Bass Coast Health required an efficient data collection software solution, in addition to fundamental features in an Electronic Medical Record.

MasterCare EMR comprises of a complete Electronic Medical Record and Practice Management solution, with key productivity outcomes for Minimum Data Set collection.

The software supports the necessary Minimum Data Sets required for funding including: Commonwealth Home Support Program (CHSP), Home and Community Care (HACC), Community Health (CH) MDS, Victorian Alcohol and Drug Collection (VADC) and Victorian Integrated Non-admitted Health (VINAH) data sets.

MasterCare EMR’s Product Manager, Kye Cherian said MasterCare EMR’s intelligent commissioning framework allowed much of the new program data capture and reporting requirements to be supported through software configuration rather than new development.

“Global Health were excited by the opportunity to work with Bass Coast Health, whose project team brought a deep understanding of Victorian program workflow and data capture requirements. It resulted in a project where both parties took the time to understand the product framework, business needs and data capture requirements. The outcome was a solution that utilises the products exceptional configurability to support new programs and streamline workflows with minimal software enhancements required.

It is validating to see our framework stand-up with such a broad scope in tight timelines, but it’s important to note that our project with Bass Coast Health does not end here. Global Health and Bass Coast Health are committed to continuing the partnership in order to establish MasterCare EMR as an exceptional solution for Victorian Community Health providers.” Kye said.

The 3-month implementation involved interfacing MasterCare EMR to the already existing DXC iPM Patient Management System currently used in acute services around Victoria.

MasterCare EMR will be used by Bass Coast Health clinicians to manage the assessment and management plans of clients, along with the monitoring and measuring of on-going outcomes.

Program reporting has become increasingly important for community health with services delivered in a variety of settings including inpatients, outpatients, residential aged care facilities and in-home visits.

The increased efficiency of data collection in MasterCare EMR has resulted in a wide range of benefits including ease of reporting and a decreased duplication of work.

Bass Coast Health is the major public healthcare provider in South Gippsland, Victoria. Bass Coast Health’s Community Services provide a wide range of allied health and clinical nurse consulting services that include assessment and treatment to clients within the Gippsland South Coast.
