Parkville Electronic Medical Record Diversity and Inclusion Project

Leading Thinkers Series

Zoom Meeting


About

The Parkville Electronic Medical Record Diversity & Inclusion Project run by the Parkville Precinct, was a 12-month initiative that updated patient systems to capture gender identity, legal sex, sex at birth, sexual orientation, pronouns and chosen name in the EMR. Hospital team members could then access this information to better support and provide care for patients who are members of the LGBTIQA+ community, improving safety, wellbeing and the consumer experience. 

This project is the first of its kind in Victoria where a collective of health services has come together and improved its medical records to better meet the needs of the LGBTIQA+ community.

Our presentation will highlight the comprehensive implementation, delivery, and workflow of Diversity and Inclusion in EPIC. 
Specifically, we will deliver into the execution of this initiative and shed light on the functionality of the Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity (SOGI) module within EPIC. The presentation content will include the following aspects:
