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.’

Mueller examining Cambridge Analytica, Trump campaign ties

Mar 22, 2018

WASHINGTON — Special counsel Robert Mueller is scrutinizing the connections between President Donald Trump's campaign and the data mining firm Cambridge Analytica, which has come under fierce criticism over reports that it swiped the data of more than 50 million Facebook users to sway elections. Mueller's investigators have asked former campaign officials about the Trump campaign's data operations, particularly about how it collected and utilized voter data in battleground states, according to a person with direct knowledge of the line of inquiry but not authorized to discuss it publicly. The investigators have also asked some of Trump's data team, which...

The Latest: Facebook takes baby steps on privacy

Mar 22, 2018

NEW YORK — The Latest on reports that millions of Facebook users' data was used to target political ads (all times local): 6 p.m. Facebook has opted to take little more than baby steps to address its latest scandal over its users' privacy. From the company's perspective, that makes perfect sense. Stronger safeguards on user data might damage Facebook's core business: using what it knows about you to sell ads that target your interests. Facebook is proposing only narrow countermeasures that address the specifics of the furor over Cambridge Analytica, a political consulting firm that's accused of improperly obtaining data...

Budget bill likely would end Supreme Court email search case

Mar 22, 2018

WASHINGTON — The budget bill before Congress includes an update to federal law that makes clear that authorities with a warrant can obtain emails and other data held by American technology companies but stored on servers overseas. Passage of the Cloud Act probably would end a Supreme Court dispute between Microsoft and the Trump administration over emails the government wants as part of a drug trafficking investigation. U.S. authorities obtained a warrant for the emails, but Microsoft has refused to provide the emails because they are kept on a Microsoft server in Ireland. The Cloud Act has the backing of...

Facebook's Zuckerberg apologizes for 'major breach of trust'

Mar 22, 2018

NEW YORK — Breaking five days of silence, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg apologized for a "major breach of trust," admitted mistakes and outlined steps to protect user data in light of a privacy scandal involving a Trump-connected data-mining firm. "I am really sorry that happened," Zuckerberg said of the scandal involving data mining firm Cambridge Analytica. Facebook has a "responsibility" to protect its users' data, he said in a Wednesday interview on CNN. If it fails, he said, "we don't deserve to have the opportunity to serve people." His mea culpa on cable television came a few hours after he...

NEW YORK — The Latest on the alleged use of Facebook data to influence the U.S. presidential election (all times local): 10:20 p.m. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg says he believes it's time to impose more regulations on technology companies as they play an increasingly important role in the world. But he isn't spelling what kind of rules he would support beyond requiring clear disclosure about who is paying for online ads. Zuckerberg told CNN in an interview late Wednesday that it no longer is a question whether Facebook and other large tech companies should be more closely regulated. Instead, he...
