BookWise Oncology Scheduling goes live

The Day Oncology Units at Maroondah Hospital and Yarra Ranges Health have gone live this week with the Bookwise Oncology Scheduling system.  Box Hill Hospital Day Oncology and Medical Unit went live on 23rd October 2014.

The BookWise Consultants travelled from the United Kingdom to complete the installation and implementation activities, including training of primary users such as Nursing, Clerical, Pharmacist and Management staff.

Nursing staff as part of training entered all of Eastern Health’s 3 Units all future patient data (over 800 records).  The BookWise scheduling system is being utilised by Day Oncology, Pharmacy, Medical Infusion, Eastern@Home  and Ward 4.1 Oncology ward Box Hill staff. 

The benefits to the Day Oncology Units are:

  • Consistent approach in scheduling patient appointments  
  • Ability to view all units appointments and nurse schedules
  • Ability to generate standard reports automatically
  • Significant time savings in obtaining  and reporting on patient, treatment and nurse data

Julia Dale, Project Officer for the Bookwise implementation has prepared the staff and organisation with exceptional attention to detail to ensure a smooth implementation of a major initiative that has been in the planning for a number of years.
