Northland District Health Board is seeking a vendor to provide an emergency department information system. According to request for tender documents released this week, the Board wants to replace a paper-based system.
There is a high level of clinical information capture that is paper-based and time consuming and, as such, identifying bottlenecks of patient flows is difficult because of a lack of accurate data.
The Board wants to build a virtual record accessible from medical workstations, which should be cost effective and increase administration efficiency. It currently runs a Microsoft server environment.
The deadline for replies is Wednesday, April 1. More details are available on the Government Electronic Tenders website under ICCNZ reference 25174.
