NSW reveals epic cost of new digital health record

The New South Wales government will spend more than $1 billion over the next decade on a new digital health record that promises to deliver patient visibility for clinicians beyond Local Health Districts.

As work begins on the statewide platform, NSW has revealed the staggering cost of the Single Digital Health Record (SDHR), which will be delivered by US-based electronic medical record (EMR) vendor Epic Systems.

The contract was inked in August, following months of negotiations that began when Epic was selected to deliver the SDHR in November last year. NSW Health went looking for an EMR provider back in 2019.
