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.’

NTSB: Autopilot was in use before Tesla hit semitrailer

May 24, 2019

DETROIT — A Tesla Model S involved in a fatal crash with a semitrailer in Florida March 1 was operating on the company's semi-autonomous Autopilot system, federal investigators have determined. The car drove beneath the trailer, killing the driver, in a crash that is strikingly similar to one that happened on the other side of Florida in 2016 that also involved use of Autopilot. In both cases, neither the driver nor the Autopilot system stopped for the trailers, and the roofs of the cars were sheared off. The crash, which remains under investigation by the National Transportation Safety Board and...

Schools turn to technology to reduce toll during shootings

May 24, 2019

LOS ANGELES — Efforts to combat school shootings are shifting toward software and other technology to reduce the number of victims. Security experts say gunshot detection systems, apps and artificial intelligence are becoming more common because school attacks, while relatively rare, have been among the deadliest mass shootings in U.S. history. The technology is often used in combination with mental health and anti-bullying programs. Schools in Beverly Hills and others nationwide are adopting a strategy that aims to speed up the law enforcement response to shootings. Beverly Hills officials have added armed security guards, surveillance cameras and an app to...

Self-driving vehicle pulled over by curious police officer

May 24, 2019

PROVIDENCE, R.I. — A self-driving shuttle got pulled over by police on its first day carrying passengers on a new Rhode Island route. Providence Police Chief Hugh Clements said an officer pulled over the odd-looking autonomous vehicle because he had never seen one before. "It looked like an oversize golf cart," Clements said. The vehicle, operated by Michigan-based May Mobility, was dropping off passengers Wednesday morning at Providence's Olneyville Square when a police cruiser arrived with blinking lights and a siren. It was just hours after the public launch of a state-funded pilot for a shuttle service called "Little Roady."...

New security flaw in Intel chips could affect millions

May 24, 2019

SANTA CLARA, Calif. — Intel has revealed another hardware security flaw that could affects millions of machines around the world. The chipmaker said Tuesday there's no evidence of anyone exploiting the bug outside of a research laboratory. "Doing so successfully in the real world is a complex undertaking," Bryan Jorgensen, Intel's senior director of product assurance and security, said in a video statement. The bug is embedded in the architecture of computer hardware. But "with a large enough data sample, time or control of the target system's behavior," Jorgensen said, the flaw could enable attackers to see leaked data. It's...

Uber to give its market value a lift in stock market debut

May 24, 2019

SAN FRANCISCO — Uber's next stop is the stock market, where it hopes to pick up more investors willing to bet on a ride-hailing market brimming with potential and conspicuously lacking in profits. The world's largest ride-hailing service reached a major milestone Thursday when Uber priced its long-awaited initial public offering at $45 price per share to set the stage for its stock to begin trading Friday morning. The IPO came in at the lower end of Uber's targeted price range of $44 to $50 per share. The caution may have been driven by escalating doubts about the ability of...
