Rebecca Muir presenting at Digital Health Week NZ conference

CCN is proud to share that Shared Care Planning Programme Lead and Product Manager Rebecca Muir will be presenting at Digital Health Week New Zealand 2022 in Rotorua next month. 

Rebecca will be talking about how nearly 170 aged residential care (ARC) facilities across the South Island now have access to their residents’ shared electronic care records via Health Connect South (HCS) and HealthOne.

This allows ARC staff to access up-to-date information including lab results, transfer of care information, outpatient appointments, and shared care plans to aid with planning and managing their residents’ care.

Rebecca, who has led the training component of the project, is excited to share this update with key players from the digital health sector as the rollout has vast benefits for the wider health system.

“We have received a lot of positive feedback from users which I am looking forward to sharing, including how having access is making the delivery of care more efficient and effective. It is also making life easier for the nursing staff,” says Rebecca.

“Having access to their resident’s health record can assist in informing care decisions, which can lead to reducing unnecessary or inappropriate treatments and hospital transfers.”

"It also means ARC staff can view, create and review their residents’ Shared Care Plans, including Advance Care Plans, Shared Goals of Care and Acute Plans.”

Rebecca’s presentation will include information about the onboarding and training of ARC staff, embedding this new way of working, data about the type of information that can be viewed, staff feedback and lessons learnt.
