New Zealand’s System for the Management of Hazardous Substances in the Workplace is Changing 2017-07-05T09:53:48Z new-zealand-s-system-for-the-management-of-hazardous-substances-in-the-workplace-is-changing New Zealand’s system for the management of hazardous substances in the Workplace is changing. The Health and Safety at Work (Hazardous Substances) Regulations will come into force in December 2017. The Regulations are aimed at reducing both immediate harm and longer-term illness that can result from the work-related use of hazardous substances. If yours is one of the 150,000 businesses across New Zealand that manufacture, use, handle, store or transport hazardous substances, take note that the rules that govern the use of hazardous substances in the workplace are moving from the Hazardous Substances and New Organisms (HSNO) Act (administered by the EPA) into a new Health and Safety at Work (HSW) Act (administered by WorkSafe). Hazardous chemicals are substances, mixtures and articles that can pose a significant risk to health and safety if not managed correctly. They may have Health hazards, Physical hazards and/or Environmental hazards. Examples of chemical that can cause adverse health effects in the Workplace include: ·      toxic chemicals ·      substances that cause burns or skin and eye irritation ·      substances that may cause cancer (carcinogens) Examples of chemicals that can immediately injure people or damage property include: §  flammable liquids §  compressed gasses §  explosives. Many hazardous substances are also classed as dangerous goods. As soon as the changes come into force, WorkSafe New Zealand will become solely responsible for compliance in the handling, storage, disposal, use and manufacturing of hazardous substances in workplace. Also included is the supervision of the Test Certification process for handling, storage and the location of the hazardous substances. As a result of these changes WorkSafe will also become accountable for enforcing environmental controls for hazardous substances in workplaces. The EPA (Environmental Protection Authority) under whose umbrella hazardous substances currently fall, will continue its role in controlling the issue outside the workplace. It will still receive the applications for hazardous substances, assess their risks and decide whether they should be approved for use in New Zealand. The EPA will also continue to be responsible for setting the rules for classification, labelling, safety data sheets, packaging and the protection of the environment and public health. In future, the EPA will be responsible for making sure importers and manufacturers: ·      have a HSNO approval ·      have the right label, packaging and safety data sheets for their substances ·      comply  with the rules around the allowable limits of certain hazardous substances within products ·      comply with the bans on persistent organic pollutants. ·      comply with information requirements.  One of the amendments made to the HSNO Act is the ability for the EPA to issue EPA Notices. These are a new way for the EPA to set rules under the HSNO. This change will allow the EPA to categorise all of the directions about one topic, so that they are easy to find and the compliance requirements are clear. Unlike regulations, which must be approved by Cabinet, EPA notices are approved by the EPA Board. This means they can be updated quickly and easily thereby enabling New Zealand to keep up-to-date with international developments. The notices also allow the EPA to remove duplicate or conflicting provisions, remove outdated, unnecessary or overly complex controls and remedy gaps or problems with the current regulations. WorkSafe New Zealand outlines a number of steps to follow to ensure your site is compliant with regards to managing hazardous substances. The first step is to find out what hazardous substances you have on your site and prepare an inventory. List all of the substances on your site and create a site plan that shows where they are stored. The inventory should show the name of the substance, its hazard classification, strength of (liquid) solution and amount held for each separate location where it is held.  myosh HSEQ Software System assists companies with this compliance. The Chemical Register module allows all workplace hazardous substances to be listed, classified and linked to the applicable Safety Data Sheet It also meets the requirements of the new Globally Harmonised System for the Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS). The link below will lead you to a very useful guide with regards to Hazardous Substances in New Zealand.  EPA – Your Practical Guide: Working Safely with Hazardous Substances   References:   A turning point for Australian hospitals and a chance to save millions in health dollars 2017-07-04T07:09:53Z a-turning-point-for-australian-hospitals-and-a-chance-to-save-millions-in-health-dollars Sydney, NSW – July 4, 2017 – EIS proudly announces the release of their game-changing coding and grouping software – TurboGrouper.“For many years, Australian hospitals and day-surgeries have had little choice in grouping tools,” said Alfred Papallo, Founder and CEO of EIS. “TurboGrouper is leading the charge of digital disruption within the market by making coding and grouping of medical records as efficient, accurate and cost-effective as possible for our clients.”Grouping of coded medical records into Diagnosis Related Groups (DRGs) is critical for the pricing of admitted acute episodes of care in Australian public and private hospitals, and is the cornerstone for Activity Based Funding (ABF). DRGs are essential for health authorities to provide better management, measurement and payment of high-quality and efficient health care services. They are also used by health funds, researchers, epidemiologists, health economists and statisticians.TurboGrouper was built in conjunction with clinical coders and Health Information Managers (HIMs) to provide an easy-to-use, end-to-end medical coding and grouping solution that delivers accurate and consistent results. TurboGrouper has been reviewed by Australian Consortium for Classification Development (ACCD) and received a Certificate of Acceptance.TurboGrouper provides an integrated, easy-to-use and affordable choice to hospitals for DRG grouping. This software is integrated with the popular EIS clinical coding tool, TurboCoder, and uses a similar user interface given its proven simplicity. It also fully integrates with hospital Patient Administration Systems (PAS). Most importantly, TurboGrouper will save hospital costs by offering user-based (instead of separation-based) licencing, and by accurately and transparently grouping codes to ensure the correct hospital reimbursement is received.TurboGrouper, along with TurboCoder, seeks to bring disruptive change and competition to the medical record coding market, as well as savings to the public and private health sectors by offering an affordable alternative choice that ‘just works’ for coders and HIMs.If your organisation needs to code and group faster and more accurately, or if you simply want more information, head to the TurboGrouper website ( or call the EIS team on +61 (0)2 9411 3711 to schedule a demo. ### About Eurofield Information Solutions Eurofield Information Solutions (EIS) is an award winning software technology company, and the developer of a market leading electronic reference publishing and distribution solution, eComPress.EIS has produced digital solutions for health in Australia and internationally for over 15 years.eComPress has received numerous awards, including the Australian Technology Showcase (ATS) Award and a Consensus Software Award.

Northern Territory Selects InterSystems to Implement Single Digital Medical Record for All Territorians 2017-06-26T05:00:41Z northern-territory-selects-intersystems-to-implement-single-digital-medical-record-for-all-territorians SYDNEY, June 26, 2017 – InterSystems, a global leader in health information technology, today announced that the Northern Territory Government (NTG) has chosen to implement InterSystems TrakCare® for its Core Clinical Systems Renewal Program (CCSRP). The selection of the InterSystems solution is the outcome of an open, competitive tender that was managed by the NTG Department of Corporate and Information Services. InterSystems TrakCare unified clinical information system will be implemented at every point of care across all public health facilities, including the five existing public hospitals, the new Palmerston Regional Hospital (to be completed in 2018), 54 remote health centres and all community-based health services, including the most remote locations of the 1.3-million-sq.-km. territory. Through this agreement, the Northern Territory will become the first Australian state or territory with a single system for all of its public healthcare sites. CCSRP is the “largest ever” IT reform in the Territory, according to health minister Natasha Fyles, and is designed to improve health outcomes for all Territorians by promoting efficiency, effectiveness and integration throughout the public healthcare system. InterSystems will deploy TrakCare on its HealthShare platform, and clinicians at remote locations – even if they have intermittent Internet access – will be able to use TrakCare to manage a cohort of patients on disconnected devices and upload changes when they regain connectivity. The Northern Territory Department of Health, or NT Health, aims to deliver better overall experiences for every Territorian through a single, end-to-end patient information system to coordinate care. The availability of a single record, with all relevant information provided to authorised users and clients, both at the point of care and for the planning and review of client care, is critical to consistent, high-quality care. “InterSystems is proud to support this major initiative to improve the public health system,” said Steve Garrington, vice president of international business for InterSystems. “Key to our partnership with NTG and future service excellence is the implementation of one information system suitable for hospitals, non-acute facilities and primary care centres. There will be challenges, with some very remote sites, which we look forward to overcoming though our long term engagement and collaboration with NT Health.” “InterSystems was selected as the preferred provider, among highly competitive international vendors, through a robust procurement process which was supported by a wider group of frontline NT Heath Staff,” said Associate Professor Nadarajah Kangaharan, Clinical Sponsor for the CCSRP. “As Australia’s first end-to-end fully integrated ICT solution, once implemented, it is expected to support a highly efficient, safe and quality healthcare delivery to Territorians with ability to monitor clinical outcomes.” About InterSystems InterSystems is the engine behind the world’s most important applications. In healthcare, finance, government, and other sectors where lives and livelihoods are at stake, InterSystems is the power behind what matters. Founded in 1978, InterSystems is a privately held company headquartered in Cambridge, Massachusetts (USA), with offices worldwide, and its software products are used daily by millions of people in more than 80 countries. For more information, visit Syncdocs protects Google Drive with end-to-end encryption 2017-06-22T22:02:14Z syncdocs-protects-google-drive-with-end-to-end-encryption Recent hacks and phishing attacks against data stored in the Yahoo and Google cloud systems have again highlighted the need for proper security. When data are protected by a single access password any hacker gaining permissions can access everything. This can be prevented by encrypting the data at-rest. While some methods already exist to encrypt data at-rest for on-premises IT, Syncdocs is the first solution to provide fully automatic end-to-end encryption for Google Drive. Google currently only encrypts the Google Drive data while in transit. That means anyone who can hack the Google account, or a Google G-Suite administrator can access your Google Drive files. It is also all too easy to mistakenly share a file. Syncdocs is different: it encrypts Google Drive files locally, before they ever leave your PC, Mac or phone. This makes accessing data much harder for hackers. Fully encrypt Google Drive "Google holds the keys to their encryption solution, so it does not provide true protection, as they still have full access to your data. Any hacker compromising a Google or Yahoo account has full access." says customer Simon Fuller, CIO of Oxito Cloud Solutions, "With Syncdocs we own the keys, and no one else can access or spy on our data. This is essential for compliance." Files and folders are securely protected in the cloud with military-strength AES256 encryption. This is important for protecting corporate or customer data stored in the computing cloud. Regulations now demanding encryption The European Union General Data Protection Regulation enforces end-to-end encryption to protect EU citizens’ privacy rights. At the opening of the UK parliament yesterday, the Queen confirmed plans for a similar data protection law in the UK. For healthcare and legal professionals, the at-rest encryption provided by Syncdocs is needed when complying with government regulations like HIPAA for storing patient records. Syncdocs enhances Google Drive Syncdocs also offers many other enhancements to Google Drive, chiefly: * Multiple accounts can be used concurrently. This is especially useful for users with separate home and work Google accounts. * Folders are synced from anywhere on a PC or network, not just the single folder dictated by Google. * Syncdocs can easily be deployed in the enterprise with fully automated, scripted installations. * All Google data is backed up, even Google documents and spreadsheets. * Easy migration from Microsoft Office to Google Docs A short video shows these features in action. Those wanting better online security, or simply wishing to improve Google Drive, can grab a free evaluation copy of Syncdocs from Nominate a deserving AusMumpreneur and show your support for Australian mums in business 2017-06-22T02:00:12Z nominate-a-deserving-ausmumpreneur-and-show-your-support-for-australian-mums-in-business The AusMumpreneur Conference and AusMumpreneur Awards are all about supporting Australian mums in business.

The initiative will see the TGA provide free resources such as assistance with building a support network and information about regulators and funding opportunities. “ADIA has been a strong advocate for reforms that make the TGA’s regulatory framework less complex and easier to navigate for business. The SME Assist initiative is one outcome of ADIA’s advocacy in this area,” said Troy Williams, ADIA Chief Executive Officer. Small businesses in the dental industry are confronted with some 1,069 pages of legislation that the TGA uses regulate the manufacturing and supply of dental products. Small business have often found navigating their way through this a challenge when seeking to introduce new and innovative dental products to the Australian market. “ADIA congratulates the commitment of the Australian Government to assisting these businesses better understand the most efficient way to secure market approval for new and innovative patient treatment options,” Mr Williams said. There are eight industry associations in the therapeutic goods sector and it’s the ADIA membership that stand to benefit most from the SME Assist initiative. “ADIA has the largest corporate membership of the industry associations in the therapeutic goods sector and the largest SME membership. Indeed, more than three-quarters of our membership has an annual turnover of less than ten million dollars. That’s what makes this announcement so meaningful for ADIA member businesses,” Mr Williams said. The SME Assist is one of a number of reforms by the TGA instituted during the course of the past year that align with ADIA’s advocacy priorities. “Our message to government has been clear. In order to grow, create jobs and operate sustainably we need the TGA to be more responsive to the needs of the SME sector. Today was a great step forward in this area,” Mr Williams concluded.

MercyAscot is now one of New Zealand’s largest private surgical facilities with 22 operating theatres, an intensive care unit and coronary care facilities. The MercyAscot clinical team will benefit from four times the detail of current high-definition imaging systems, providing them with the image quality needed to operate with confidence in all situations. According to Professor John Windsor, General & Laparoscopic surgeon at MercyAscot, “The Olympus 4K system is the best I have used in over 25 years of advanced laparoscopic surgery. A head to head comparison with the best systems on the market resulted in the purchase of the Olympus 4K system, because depth perception is not as important as edge precision and clarity. For fine dissection and accurate suturing I have never felt more confident than with this latest system.”     Olympus 4K is the only system available with a native 4K sensor, offering a complete end-to-end imaging chain that is completely optimised for true 4K surgical viewing. This gives MercyAscot’s surgeons a unique experience that is closest to the sensitivity and acuity of natural eyesight. “From a surgical and imaging perspective, Olympus 4K has provided me with the four “C” qualities that I need; rich Colours, Clarity, high Contrast & Cutting-edge technology” said Dr. Nagham Al-Mozany, Consultant Colorectal and General Surgeon at MercyAscot.     MercyAscot is committed to invest in highly skilled staff and cutting-edge technology. Investing in technologies such as the Olympus 4K surgery platform helps the hospital meet this commitment and gives surgeons the natural immersion needed to consistently dissect and suture with precision. “The Olympus 4K platform is by far the best 2D imaging system that I have seen to date. The image has clearly defined borders and colour. This, I believe makes tissue differentiation, and possibly even depth perception so much easier for our specialists. This is the future of 2D laparoscopic work,” said Michael Eris V. Elizalde, Charge Nurse, MercyAscot. The new system commenced clinical use at MercyAscot Auckland in December 2016 after an extensive installation and training period that commenced in November 2016. The transition has been seamless with ongoing training and support provided by Olympus. “We supported the surgical team at MercyAscot to ensure there was a smooth transition across to the new systems. Our Surgical Imaging Sales Specialist, Carolyn Tongue, worked alongside nurses, surgeons, CSSD and biomedical staff, providing case support and education. We continue to work alongside MercyAscot to provide a first class experience with the Olympus 4K system,” said Kath Rawson, Olympus Medical Regional Sales Manager. -ENDS- Images:   Image 1: The Olympus 4K UHD surgical platform delivers images in true 4K clarity Dropbox link:   Image 2: The Olympus 4K UHD surgical platform camera control unit (top) and light source (bottom) Dropbox link:   Image 3: The Olympus 4K UHD platform provides four times the detail of current HD imaging systems Dropbox link:   Logos: Variations of the MercyAscot Hospital logo Dropbox link: Dropbox link: Dropbox link:   About MercyAscot New Zealand MercyAscot's heritage goes back over 100 years to when Mercy Hospital started to provide healthcare services to the people of Auckland.

Aruba helps organisations track valuable assets 2017-06-06T23:22:19Z aruba-helps-organisations-track-valuable-assets New BLE-powered Aruba Tags, Aruba Access Points and Meridian Software Eliminate Loss of Valuable Assets and Automate Inventory Management; Expanded Ecosystem Enables Broad Adoption Across Industries  Sydney – June 7, 2017 – Aruba, a Hewlett Packard Enterprise company, today announced a new addition to its location-based services portfolio that helps organisations easily track valued assets, resulting in improved organisational efficiency, and lower capital and operational costs associated with misplaced assets. The Aruba asset tracking solution is fully integrated into the Aruba wireless infrastructure enabling simplified, fully integrated deployments at dramatically reduced costs.   Organisations worldwide lose millions of dollars every year on high-value items and inventory that are either misplaced, lost or stolen. Furthermore, employees and customers suffer from lost productivity and poor experiences. These challenges are particularly prevalent in industries like healthcare, where items such as IV pumps and heart defibrillators, are easily misplaced, resulting in 25 percent of hospital staff’s time wasted looking for these assets1  and negatively impacting quality of care. In retail and warehousing, items that can’t be located quickly mean wasted time for employees, delayed order fulfillment for customers and often, a loss of revenue for the retailer.   Aruba General Manager, South Pacific, Anthony Smith, said, “Aruba asset tracking addresses these challenges with a solution that is integrated into the Aruba Wi-Fi infrastructure eliminating the need for a separate network. Organizations also gain the benefits of accurate tracking of important items using either an intuitive, map-based mobile app or by integrating with organizations’ existing tracking solutions.”   The solution includes the following components: Advancements to ArubaOS and Aruba APs: This new software allows Aruba BLE-enabled Access Points and Sensors to act as asset tag “observers,” creating a sensory network that provides added value to organisations with existing Aruba wireless infrastructure. In essence, it allows their Wi-Fi infrastructure to double as an asset tracking network. New Aruba Tags:  Cost-effective Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) – enabled tags are slightly larger than a quarter, making them ideal for items that range in size from IV pumps in a healthcare setting to pallets of goods in a warehouse. The tags are designed to meet stringent environmental requirements and come with multiple attachment options. Asset Tag Configuration App: Aruba’s configuration app makes set-up and ongoing management of the tags simple. Assets can be designated with names, photos and optional IDs so that like assets can be searched for easily. Changes can be performed quickly, near the assets, and all data is automatically saved in a central cloud database. New features for the Aruba Meridian AppMaker: Organisations can now create their own asset tracking app for iOS or Android with the Meridian AppMaker. The AppMaker provides a new SDK and APIs for seamless third-party integration and custom use cases.  Partner Ecosystem Enables Broad Adoption Across Industries Key to the success of Aruba’s existing location-based services and Mobile Engagement portfolio has been the Meridian Engage Partner Program. Customers have leveraged app developers to integrate and build value-added mobile apps for iOS and Android that are used with the Meridian Mobile App Platform and Aruba Mobile Engagement portfolio. Aruba is extending this program to include asset tracking, as well as opening the program to new partners in a variety of industries across healthcare, retail, warehousing and numerous other verticals.   Continuing its investment in the Intelligent Edge, Aruba also introduced its 8400 Core Switch at HPE Discover.  The 8400 Core Switch is a new core aggregation switch that delivers the performance, power, automation and troubleshooting capabilities necessary to address the challenges of mobility, cloud and IoT inherent in networks today.  The announcement of the 8400 Core Switch in conjunction with its asset tracking solution demonstrates Aruba’s ongoing commitment to bring innovation to organisations.  HPE PointnextAruba Meridian Services from HPE Pointnext provide customers and partners worldwide with the expertise needed to take advantage of location-based services to engage with mobile users in any organisation or public-facing venue.
