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.’

Radio reporter regains a voice with new technology

Jun 18, 2018

ATLANTA — Two years ago, longtime radio reporter Jamie Dupree encountered what others in his profession might see as an insurmountable challenge: He lost his voice. The 54-year-old veteran political newsman for Cox media found a workaround: He focused on text-based reporting and communicated with interview subjects through notecards. But being unable to speak was not just a problem in his profession; it affected every area of his life. Now, with the help of technology, he can "speak" again. CereProc, a Scottish company that creates text-to-speech technology, has crafted a new voice for Dupree: software that turns his typed sentences...

Jun 18, 2018

CHICAGO — Entrepreneur Elon Musk said Thursday a high-speed transportation system that will whisk people between downtown Chicago and O'Hare International Airport at speeds of up to 150 mph could be operational in about three years. Musk joined Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel to formally announce that a Musk-owned enterprise, The Boring Company, was selected for the project and will fully fund it. They say electric vehicles will carry passengers through underground tunnels in about 12 minutes each way. Emanuel called the new transit system "the fast lane to Chicago's future," and said it will create jobs and make the city...

Apple closing iPhone security gap used by law enforcement

Jun 18, 2018

SAN FRANCISCO — Apple is closing a security gap that allowed outsiders to pry personal information from locked iPhones without a password, a change that will thwart law enforcement agencies that have been exploiting the vulnerability to collect evidence in criminal investigations. The loophole will be shut down in a forthcoming update to Apple's iOS software, which powers iPhones. Once fixed, iPhones will no longer be vulnerable to intrusion via the Lightning port used both to transfer data and to charge iPhones. The port will still function after the update, but will shut off data an hour after a phone...

Rare type of tick inexplicably turns up in Arkansas

Jun 18, 2018

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — A hardy, invasive species of tick that survived a New Jersey winter and subsequently traversed the mid-Atlantic has mysteriously arrived in Arkansas. No one is sure how the Longhorned tick, native to East Asia, arrived in the country, nor how it made its way to the middle of the continent. The Arkansas Agriculture Department said late Monday researchers at Oklahoma State University had confirmed a tick found on a dog in Benton County in the far northwestern corner of the state was a Longhorned tick. Until then, the bug had only been reported in New Jersey,...
