eASY is an electronic antiobiotic stewardship system to manage antibiotics in a hospital across various departments. It was first launched in 2011 with great success and is currently being used and implemented across the whole of Northern Sydney Local Health District.
The system provides decision support, as it can assist with suggestions for the correct antibiotic medicine based on the patient’s symptoms and previous medical history. All medical professionals involved are notified when changes to the patient’s care are made and when the status of an antibiotic order changes. This allows for greater efficiency when a number of healthcare professionals are working on a single patient.
After 3 years in the market, eASY has undergone a complete redevelopment to ensure it is up to speed with the most cutting edge eHealth technology. The new and improved eASY 2.0 has been optimized for new browsers, iPads and mobile phones, has more versatile scheduling options and many new time saving features for work flow improvements. eASY 2.0 is currently the interest of six NSW Local Health Districts for use in June 2014.
