Bendigo Health will introduce an Electronic Patient Record, an ePR, in late November 2020. An ePR is a computerised version of a paper-based medical record.
This will replace our current digital media record which combines both paper based and some digital notes. An ePR will allow your care team to have the most up to date information available all in one place and be accessed by anyone looking after you – doctors, nurses, allied health professionals and anyone else providing care to you.
Using an ePR improves patient safety, improves medication safety and allows decision to be made about your care with up to date information available to care teams.
