Global Health to roll out MasterCare EMR at Bellarine Community Health

Victorian health service Bellarine Community Health (BCH) has signed up with ASX-listed Global Health to roll out its MasterCare electronic medical record across all of BCH’s programs and services.

Global Health will also roll out its new Dashboards as a Service (DaaS) offering and its Connectivity suite, which includes the company’s eSwitch platform for integration within the service and its ReferralNet secure messaging platform for the secure sharing of patient and clinical information across the region.

Global Health CEO Mathew Cherian said the new DaaS capability will link BCH’s data to Global Health’s new data visualisation platform.

“The result will be a suite of daily reporting dashboards with real time data analytics that can be viewed by managers and executives in order to monitor service performance and support strategic decision making,” Mr Cherian said.

BCH is the latest of six Victorian community health organisations to implement MasterCare EMR in the past 18 months, joining Windana Drug and Alcohol Recovery, Bass Coast Health, Sunraysia Community Health Services and Monash Health.

The initial phase of the implementation has begun with a goal of going live with MasterCare EMR on June 30 for an estimated 200 BCH staff. The initial contract covers the implementation services and MasterCare EMR subscriptions for the first 12 months.

The MasterCare EMR will support the reporting requirements for a variety of funding programs including Victorian Integrated Non-Admitted Health (VINAH), National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), Commonwealth Home Support Program (CHSP), Alcohol and Other Drug (AOD) and Home and Community Care (HACC) programs.

Bellarine Community Health CEO Shane Dawson said the solution will meet the service’s immediate clinical administrative and reporting requirements and provide a foundation for service improvement and innovation.
