Avantix improve records management, erms & data governance at St Vincents Health

Avantix digital scanning services has completed scanning of over 9,000 personnel files for St Vincent’s Health Australia.

Murarrie, Australia - June 19, 2017 /PressCable/ —

St Vincent’s Health Australia (SVHA) is in the process of an all-encompassing digitisation project. A recent need to centralise Human Resources prompted a specific project to enable information collaboration across multiple sites.

SVHA engaged Avantix to digitise their personnel files. This project simultaneously met three objectives: achieve the needed information collaboration, enable greater efficiency of Human Resources processes, and allow the repurposing of valuable office space.

The project represented an essential step in the migration to a payroll shared service for the Private, Aged Care and Group Services Divisions of SVHA. ‘The need arose because SVHA’s service in Queensland expanded to a national service, which resulted in files growing exponentially,’ says the SVHA Project Manager, Ash Hansen.

Avantix is one of Australia’s largest Health information processing providers. Committed to using a Queensland based service, SVHA engaged Avantix after a successful trial.

The images and data needed to be bulk loaded into SVHA’s RM8 Enterprise Management system. ‘In order for this to run smoothly and remove risk, Avantix proposed conducting a test first,’ says CEO, Duncan Lord. ‘This allowed the refining of scripts and schema to ensure data governance and compliance.

SVHA’s expectations were exceeded. ‘Avantix showed commitment to quality,’ says Hansen. ‘There was flexibility on both sides, the project was on budget and communication was very transparent and personable.’

Most importantly, no defects were reported. With over 9,000 personnel files taking up over 150 archive boxes scanned, this is true testament to the high quality digitisation services provided by Avantix. ‘The Project didn’t need any rescanning, that shows very high quality delivery,’ says Hansen.

The project was a first for SVHA in Queensland but was so successful that other hospitals in the region have either completed their own digitisation projects, or are planning to.

The outcomes of the project are efficiencies for Human Resources staff. Instead of having to access paper archives manually, these records are readily available from any of the locations.

The other tangible outcome is space, with Hansen saying: ‘A room dedicated to filing has been repurposed to other commercial interests.’

Giant Hawaii telescope to focus on big unknowns of universe

Jul 21, 2019

HONOLULU — Is there life on planets outside our solar system? How did stars and galaxies form in the earliest years of the universe? How do black holes shape galaxies? Scientists are expected to explore those and other fundamental questions about the universe when they peer deep into the night sky using a new telescope planned for the summit of Hawaii's tallest mountain. But the Thirty Meter Telescope is a decade away from being built. And Native Hawaiian protesters have tried to thwart the start of construction by blocking a road to the mountain. They say installing yet another observatory...

Trump: Administration to review Pentagon computer contract

Jul 21, 2019

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump says the administration will "take a very long look" at a massive multibillion-dollar contract the Pentagon is about to award for a cloud computing system. Amazon Web Services Inc., a division of Amazon, and Microsoft Corp. are finalists for the contract estimated to be worth as much as $10 billion over a decade. Trump says Thursday at the White House that he's been hearing "tremendous complaints" from other companies that the contract was not competitively bid, among other issues. Some Republican lawmakers also took their concerns about the Pentagon's handling of the contract directly to...

A healthy lifestyle may offset genetic risk for Alzheimer's

Jul 21, 2019

LOS ANGELES — A healthy lifestyle can cut your risk of developing Alzheimer's or other forms of dementia even if you have genes that raise your risk for these mind-destroying diseases, a large study has found. People with high genetic risk and poor health habits were about three times more likely to develop dementia versus those with low genetic risk and good habits, researchers reported Sunday. Regardless of how much genetic risk someone had, a good diet, adequate exercise, limiting alcohol and not smoking made dementia less likely. "I consider that good news," said John Haaga of the U.S. National...

AP Exclusive: New election systems use vulnerable software

Jul 21, 2019

WASHINGTON — Pennsylvania's message was clear: The state was taking a big step to keep its elections from being hacked in 2020. Last April, its top election official told counties they had to update their systems. So far, nearly 60% have taken action, with $14.15 million of mostly federal funds helping counties buy brand-new electoral systems. But there's a problem: Many of these new systems still run on old software that will soon be outdated and more vulnerable to hackers. An Associated Press analysis has found that like many counties in Pennsylvania, the vast majority of 10,000 election jurisdictions nationwide...

VW, Ford team up to make autonomous, electric vehicles

Jul 21, 2019

NEW YORK — Volkswagen will invest $2.6 billion into a Pittsburgh autonomous vehicle company that's mostly owned by Ford as the automakers who were once rivals deepen their partnership to develop driverless and electric vehicles in an ultra-competitive landscape. The two automakers will become equal owners of Argo AI, and they plan to put autonomous vehicles on the roads in the U.S. and Europe as early as 2021, the companies said Friday. The deal also includes a plan for Ford to use VW's electric vehicle platform to build zero-emissions cars for the European market starting in 2023. Auto companies have...
