Philips expands Tasy EMR business to Australia and New Zealand

  • International
  • St. Andrew’s Toowoomba Hospital first in Australia to install Philips’ next-generation EMR solution with advanced clinical analytics to drive patient safety.
Sydney, Australia and Amsterdam, the Netherlands – Royal Philips (NYSE: PHG, AEX: PHIA), a global leader in health technology, and St. Andrew’s Toowoomba Hospital in Queensland Australia, today announced a multi-year partnership agreement for the hospital-wide installation of Philips Tasy EMR [1].

Tasy EMR is Philips’ next generation Electronic Medical Record (EMR) and care management solution, which addresses the shortcomings of conventional EMRs. Instead of needing multiple IT solutions from various vendors, Philips Tasy EMR offers one integrated solution across all care settings through a single platform and database that enables centralized management of clinical, organizational and administrative processes. Advanced clinical analytics allows for streamlining workflows, driving quality and efficiency of care and patient safety.

Philips’ comprehensive EMR solution will support us driving clinical innovation and operational efficiencies that sets us apart now and in the future.

“As a community hospital with a vast network and varied medical expertise striving to achieve excellence in care and service, we are dedicated to setting a benchmark for regional hospitals,” said Ray Fairweather, Chief Executive Officer at St. Andrew’s Toowoomba Hospital. “We are leveraging the latest technology to allow for safety and accuracy in healthcare while improving operational workflow for patients and staff. Philips’ comprehensive EMR solution will support us driving clinical innovation and operational efficiencies that sets us apart now and in the future.”

“Together with St. Andrew’s Toowoomba Hospital, we will fully digitize its entire care management processes and enable anytime, anywhere access to clinical analytics that helps to continuously improve safety and patient outcomes,” said Yair Briman, Business Leader, Healthcare Informatics at Philips. “Our technology with advanced real-time risk assessment and decision making aims to empower physicians, nurses and other medical professionals to make fast and confident diagnosis, treatment and follow-up decisions in all the different phases of the patient journey, from prevention to acute care. This partnership is also very exciting as it solidifies the expansion of our EMR business across the world to Australia and New Zealand.”

Secure access to real-time data from any location

Conventional EMRs typically contain standard medical and clinical data about a patient, and were originally designed to use this information primarily for administrative tasks such as billing. Philips Tasy EMR helps hospitals become digital, integrated, interoperable and secure. As Tasy EMR is built on HTML 5, as a single web-based integrated patient administration and electronic medical record platform and database, care professionals and administrators can access any information in real-time from any location within or beyond the hospital to manage their processes centrally. These processes range from patient care to inventory and supply management, revenue cycle management and business reporting.

Other processes covered by Tasy EMR include comprehensive, clinically integrated bed management and the scheduling of rooms and staff for appointments and medical procedures. By managing both clinical and administrative workflows, Tasy EMR connects the dots between different aspects of patient care. Designed to be highly flexible through traceable user roles and profiles, it keeps pace with a hospital’s workflows, standards and key performance indicators.

Advanced clinical decision support tools

As part of the customization of Tasy EMR functionalities, St. Andrew’s Toowoomba Hospital will get access to advanced clinical decision support tools and full closed loop medication management. Medication errors and unsafe medication practices are a concern to hospital systems across the world. It is estimated that in Australia alone, the annual medication error-related costs are at least $1.2 billion.

Expanding full suite decision support solution across the globe

This new partnership agreement between Philips and St. Andrew’s Toowoomba Hospital is another important step in the Tasy EMR growth success story beyond Latin America, the Middle East and Europe. The use of Tasy EMR has already helped multiple Brazilian hospitals receive EMR Adoption Model Stage 6 and Model Stage 7 (the highest level possible) certification from HIMSS Analytics; meaning they are near paperless and are driving integration, security and analytics to optimise patient care.
