This session will provide a brief introduction to the Australian private hospital environment, followed by a discussion of the local problems identified and targeted areas for improvement in clinical practice. We will share the proposed solution and how it was implemented. How we achieved HIMSS Stage 7 and the Davies Award along with lessons learned from the journey.
