This researcher is driving a major rethink of Australia’s troubled health system

Hospitalisation is getting out of hand.

The shift from paper-based hospital records to smarter digital systems is revolutionising healthcare around the world. But just because it’s a better way of doing things, doesn’t mean it’s perfect.

When hospitals switched to digitised records, opportunities arose for greater security and integration, but this has brought with it a unique set of challenges that researchers are now trying to solve.

“If you go back even 20 years ago, people already managed hospitals based on historical information. Before we had computers, it was all done with index cards,” says Dr Kerryn Butler-Henderson, a health information manager at the University of Tasmania.

“When we moved to the digital era, it was easier for hospitals to collect data, but that doesn’t mean it’s more complete and accurate. We find departments that have their own in-house databases, so it’s harder for us to access the data in uniform ways. It opens up more opportunities, but also more problems.”

Butler-Henderson and her team are working with doctors, nurses, and health information experts in the Australian healthcare sector to figure out how well-trained they are in their own digital systems, and also look at the accurately and comprehensiveness of their records.

Because if we want to know what’s going on inside our hospitals, we’re only as good as the records we keep.

“It’s a really important area,” Butler-Henderson says. “We’re trying to produce the data scientists of the future.”

It’s all in service of answering one of the biggest questions in healthcare today: Why do so many of us end up in hospitals for conditions that could be treated in outpatients, GP clinics or community care?

As an example of the problem, in 2015, Victorian hospitals admitted 60,000 patients unnecessarily, due to a lack of information being shared between GPs, hospitals, and pharmacies.

And all across Australia, hundreds of thousands of patients with chronic and recurring conditions such as type 2 diabetes and heart conditions, or those requiring only minor procedures, turn to hospitals instead of after-hours GPs or local health clinics.

It’s not just that there’s a lack of information being shared between healthcare facilities, says Butler-Henderson, the problem also stems from how we fund and run our hospitals.

“Hospitals set activity at the end of the year, and say they’re going to do X number of a particular type of surgery the following year. I have a real issue with that - we’re encouraging and rewarding illness,” she says.

“I’d like to see Australia move towards an outcome-based system. We need to keep patients out of hospitals, but it will take a major constitutional change to get there.”

Butler-Henderson and her team are now in the process of creating the world’s most comprehensive census of the healthcare information workforce to provide the scientific evidence they need to forecast the workforce of the future.

Having the right health information workforce will also assist in ensuring we collect and manage the data required to enable fundamental changes in state and federal legislatures and help reduce unnecessary hospitalisations and readmissions.

'For me, it all comes down to the data - we can’t put things right without having a system in place to collect the data to support health management and planning,” says Butler-Henderson.

“My vision is shared with a lot of people in heath - we need to make sure we’ve got this digital workforce to support and provide healthcare.”

“I hope in my lifetime we have less people going to hospital,” she adds. “I want to be without a job!”
