Due to COVID-19, Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre, the Royal Women’s Hospital, the Royal Melbourne Hospital and The Royal Children’s Hospital are postponing the go-live of the Parkville Electronic Medical Record (EMR).

This decision has been made to enable the four health services to focus on the COVID-19 response and the provision of safe patient care during these unprecedented times.

The Parkville EMR program was on track and on budget to be delivered in May 2020.

The duration of the postponement will depend on the length and intensity of COVID-19. A new go-live date will be confirmed in the coming months.
