St John of God Health Care will roll out the Charm Evolution® oncology information management system nationally, following a successful pilot at St John of God Subiaco Hospital’s Bendat Family Comprehensive Cancer Centre.
Charm Evolution®, delivered by health care technology firm Magentus, connects vital information about a patient’s care journey into a single digital record.
The system will be introduced as the centralised oncology patient record at St John of God Health Care hospitals across Australia including hospitals in Bunbury, Geraldton, Midland, Murdoch, Berwick, Bendigo and Ballarat.
Charm Evolution® will underpin improved collaboration and continuity of care via seamless interoperability with the Enterprise Patient Administration System, Digital Medical Record, Pathology, and My Health Record.
St John of God Subiaco Hospital Chief Pharmacist, Peter Smart, said:
“Introducing Charm Evolution® has significantly improved clarity of prescribing and administration instructions, and the ability to force safety functions.
“It has given clinicians access to a complete oncology patient record in a single system, accessible from any location.
“We have experienced improved visibility and reportability around patient status and waiting times, enhanced governance over treatment pathways, and improved communication between our nursing and pharmacy teams, with real-time notifications for product readiness.”
Charm Evolution® Product Lead at Magentus, Margot Mason, said:
“Magentus is proud to be partnering with St John of God Health Care in providing better care through world-class technology, improving health outcomes for patients.
“Charm Evolution® has already helped St John of God Subiaco Hospital provide the highest possible standard of care. By rolling out the solution across additional sites it will improve collaboration between multidisciplinary teams and ensure patients across the St John of God Health Care network all have access to the best quality care.”
Magentus APAC CEO, Christopher Ladds, said:
“We know St John of God Health Care takes patient care and safety seriously and we’re delighted to be supporting their valuable work, giving teams all the support they need to ensure they have the right information available at the right time.
“Helping health services evolve from traditional paper-based records to electronic information sharing is just one of the ways we’re helping create a healthier society.”
