The Victorian Heart Hospital will be one of Australia’s most digitally advanced hospitals when it opens in three months thanks to the combined efforts of Monash Health clinical and support staff. 

At a Digital Transformation Workshop held earlier this week to outline changes to the way people will work, Monash Health Chief Executive Andrew Stripp praised those who helped design new digital workflows and changes to electronic medical records. 

“The next step is to implement these changes and bring them to life so we can improve the care we provide our patients and the experience they receive,” he said. 

More than 70 senior leaders from Monash Health attended the workshop, which aimed to ensure staff have a detailed understanding of the changes and can identify any issues requiring support and action. 

The workshop focused on digital changes in four key areas at the Victorian Heart Hospital: ambulatory clinics, inpatient care, non-invasive investigations and a diagnostic imaging, and anaesthesia. 

The $577 million Victorian Heart Hospital is Australia’s first standalone cardiac hospital and research facility. It is scheduled to open in late February 2023. 

On opening, the hospital will provide a full range of cardiovascular services, including critical and emergency care, outpatient clinics, imaging services, interventional services, and a full cardiac surgical program. 

Roles at the Victorian Heart Hospital are closing soon. If you are interested in growing your career at Australia’s first dedicated cardiac hospital – or know someone who might be – visit our careers website and apply today.
