CSC Partners with Int’l Healthcare Provider for EHR Sharing to Improve Care; Byron Phillips Comments

CSC-logo-Computer Sciences Corp. is working with an international healthcare provider to create an offering that would allow hospitals in Australia and New Zealand to share electronic health information for the treatment of patients, Pulse+IT Magazine reported Monday.

Kate McDonald writes the goal of CSC and the Little Company of Mary Health Care is to setup a database that would be integrated with a government-mandated personally controlled electronic health record platform.

According to the article, the project aims to encourage the use of the PCEHR as hospitals and healthcare providers find a system where they can store large amounts of patient information.

“There are a lot of people who can be identified for more appropriate care far earlier than we realize,” CSC healthcare solutions director Byron Phillips said.

“When they turn up in emergency departments for example, it not only may be the wrong place for them, but further unnecessary pressure is placed on hospital resources,” he added.

McDonald reports CSC plans to utilize the i.Patient Manager to automate the collection and transmission of medical records throughout the Calvary hospital network as well as 300 other hospitals in the two countries.

“Early triaging is some of the work that we are doing in i.PM on the path of better management in the right care setting, which in future may not always be a hospital,” he added.
