St Stephen’s Private Hospital in Hervey Bay, Queensland Australia was recently awarded the HIMSS Davies Award for Clinical Excellence. 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. What our closed loop electronic medication management system looks like and the impact on nursing workflows. How we use reporting to measure and demonstrate improvements in patient safety. How we encouraged clinician ownership of the system and change management practices used to improve the clinician experience.
