Oneview Healthcare and Sydney Children’s Hospital Network (SCHN) have been named recipients of Microsoft 2018 Health Innovation Award for “Engage Your Patients”.
The awards, which were announced at the 2018 HIMSS Annual Conference in Las Vegas, recognise health organisations and their technology solution partners for using Microsoft’s Azure technology in innovative ways that help engage patients, empower care teams, and optimise clinical and operational effectiveness. The ‘My Health Memory’ smartphone app benefits patients and their families by providing tools to communicate with healthcare teams, access education, confirm/schedule appointments, and share health information.
“This award is a great testament to our collaborative partnership with SCHN and a huge credit to our engineering, product and project management teams who have worked so hard to bring this product to life in such a short period of time.”
– James Fitter, CEO of Oneview Healthcare
The project also received an honorary mention in the ‘Best Digital Transformation Project’ category at Australian Healthcare Week in Sydney last month.
My Health Memory App
The Sydney Children’s Hospital Network (SCHN), Australia’s largest paediatric health service has gone live with full integration of One View Healthcare’s ‘My Health Memory’ app, allowing messages sent by patients to be directly accessible by the clinical team and allowing patients to receive instructions and information on their personal device. The app is designed to help patients and their caregivers not just while the patient is in the hospital, but also when the patient is at home.
In what is thought to be the first direct patient content to be integrated into an EMR in Australia – and perhaps even worldwide –Oneview worked with SCHN to co-design the app, which is now live in all departments at the Children’s Hospital at Westmead. The app was first piloted in May 2017, and the full version has now been launched successfully throughout the hospital, with plans to also roll it out at Sydney Children’s Hospital at Randwick over the course of 2018.
“What excites me most about the My Health Memory app is the feedback we’ve been getting from parents and families that it actually is empowering to know that their comments and concerns have been recorded directly into the medical record for everyone to see.”
– Cheryl McCullagh, Director of Clinical Integration at SCHN
In 2007, Founder and President of Oneview Healthcare, Mark McCloskey was recovering from a surgical procedure and recognised the need for improvements the healthcare experience. He recalled the entertainment options and concierge service on a flight he took shortly after recovery, and set out to build a team of developers that could reframe how people experience healthcare through technology. Weaving a facility’s existing systems into a single seamless platform, the solution enables healthcare facilities to engage patients in meaningful ways, improve communication, and streamline workflows. In 2016 Oneview Healthcare became the first Irish company to list on the Australian Stock Exchange and has offices located in Melbourne and Sydney.
