Djerriwarrh Health Services (DjHS) is a major healthcare provider to approximately 150,000 residents around Melton and Moorabool, 50km west of Melbourne. The major sources of funding for DjHS are grants from State and federal governments. To secure the correct level of funding each year, DjHS must provide the Department of Health in Victoria with accurate reports of the number of people it treats, and in what ways. The Patient Management System (PMS) at DjHS did not allow managers to generate accurate records or reports about its increasing numbers of patients. The new solution implemented by BizData, a leading Microsoft Partner in Australia, ensures the data DjHS extracts from its PMS is always accurate when it makes submissions to government as part of its funding arrangements.
