Sunrise EMR & PAS, SA Health’s electronic medical record
SA Health is committed to protecting and improving the health of all South Australians by providing leadership in health reform, public health services (PDF 598KB), health and medical research, policy development and planning, with an increased focus on wellbeing, illness prevention, early intervention and quality care.
Expanding the electronic medical record system (EMR) to include more hospitals and healthcare sites in South Australia is one of the ways SA Health is demonstrating its commitment to the South Australian community.
SA Health's electronic medical record - Sunrise EMR & PAS
The electronic medical record system used in South Australia is called Sunrise EMR & PAS. It has been used successfully within the state’s public health system since 2013.
The state-based electronic medical record replaces the need for paper-based documentation, providing a consistent and complete electronic medical record for patients across SA Health hospitals and health services where it has been activated. View locations below.
