ARCHI is Changing
The Australian Resource Centre for Healthcare Innovations (ARCHI) website will transition from HealthShare NSW to the
Agency for Clinical Innovation (ACI) from 1 February 2013.
This provides the opportunity to consolidate and share clinical information and innovative knowledge resources across the NSW health system and beyond.
The ACI is currently reviewing the ACI website (including ARCHI), and examining ways to improve the way knowledge and information is shared across the health system. Your feedback will help us to improve our services.
We will provide updates on the ARCHI transition process as we move through this review. If you have questions, please contact , Patient and Staff Experience Project Officer on 02 9464 4722.
New on ARCHI
This project established an outreach clinic for rural women with maternal or foetal issues in pregnancy using fly in / fly out specialists supported by local services and resources. The result is better access to a specialist service closer to home, and less economic and social stress for these women and their families.
Essentials of Care (EOC) is a framework for the evaluation of the essential care provided at the clinical ward and unit level.
Using transformational practice development methodologies healthcare teams are engaged in the evaluation and development of the clinical care provided.
The Safe Clinical Handover Program has been expanded to include three new projects:
- JMO Clinical handover - Improving patient safety through consistent and quality clinical handover at all shift changes for Junior Medical Officers (JMOs).
- GP/Hospital handover - The conceptualised GP/Hospital clinical handover project aims to improve transfer of clinical information in both directions between acute facilities and General Practice.
- Ambulance to ED handover - The NSW Ambulance to Emergency Department project was established to develop a handover protocol that ensured the smooth transfer of pre-hospital care in the acute setting
What is ARCHI?
The Australian Resource Centre for Healthcare Innovations (ARCHI) is a unique national information and networking service for health professionals.
