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.’

Studying 1 million people to end cookie-cutter health care

Sep 25, 2017

WASHINGTON — U.S. researchers are getting ready to recruit more than 1 million people for an unprecedented study to learn how our genes, environments and lifestyles interact. Today, health care is based on averages, what worked best in short studies of a few hundred or thousand patients. The massive "All of Us" project instead will push what's called precision medicine, using traits that make us unique to forecast health and treat disease. The goal is to end cookie-cutter health care. A pilot is under way now. If all goes well, the National Institutes of Health plans to open enrollment early...

After 66 million years, creature wins state dinosaur honor

Sep 25, 2017

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — It took about 66 million years, but a duck-billed creature has finally won recognition as California's state dinosaur. Gov. Jerry Brown announced Saturday the signing of a bill making Augustynolophus (Aw-gus-tin-o-lo-fus) morrisi the official dinosaur of the Golden State. Fossilized remains of the duckbilled creature that lived anywhere from 100 million to 66 million years ago have been found only in California. Several other states and Washington, D.C., also have official dinosaurs. California has more than 30 state insignia including a state lichen — lace lichen — and a state fabric, denim.

Shark fin bans might not help sharks, scientists say

Sep 25, 2017

PORTLAND, Maine — As lawmakers propose banning the sale of shark fins in the U.S., a pair of scientists is pushing back, saying the effort might actually harm attempts to conserve the marine predators. Democratic Sen. Cory Booker of New Jersey introduced a bill this year designed to prevent people from possessing or selling shark fins in America, much to the delight of conservation groups such as Oceana. But marine scientists David Shiffman and Robert Hueter said this approach could be wrongheaded. Shiffman and Hueter authored a study that appears in the November issue of the journal Marine Policy, saying...

The Latest: After quakes, Mexico volcano spews vapor and ash

Sep 25, 2017

MEXICO CITY — The Latest on earthquakes in Mexico (all times local): 6:20 p.m. The Popocatepetl volcano near Mexico City has spewed a cloud of vapor with some ash about a mile (2 kilometers) into the air, but experts said it was not related to the quakes.

Ontario joins California's market to sell pollution credits

Sep 25, 2017

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — California on Friday expanded its market for buying and trading permits to emit greenhouse gases to include the Canadian province of Ontario. The market is the centerpiece of California's cap-and-trade program, which aims to reduce carbon pollution over time by capping emissions and requiring companies to obtain permits to pollute. Quebec is already part of the market. California is aiming to reduce emissions by 40 percent from 1990 levels by 2030. The two Canadian provinces have similar or stricter goals. California Gov. Jerry Brown signed the agreement Friday in Quebec at a meeting with officials of both...
