The introduction of MOSAIQ provided an electronic single oncology record enabling seamless access to patient information regardless of location across multiple facilities utilising eHealth Queensland project management and infrastructure for more than 13 facilities over more than 500,000 kms.


The integration of technology into the clinical workflow reflective of patient care path required input from multiple teams in parallel to ensure analysis, design, procurement, testing and infrastructure were delivered within timeframes required to meet the ‘go-live’ deadline. Understanding the patient flow from all perspectives highlighted the number of systems used and how disparate they are and the multiple entry points for the same patient data which at times was entered 3 or 4 times. The expertise required to enable the implementation of the MOSAIQ application is geographically dispersed between Brisbane, Rockhampton and Townsville.


To ensure the ongoing technical and clinical support of MOSAIQ met the end users requirements it was determined that the MOSAIQ application would be deployed through eHealth Queensland enterprise infrastructure.

To enable the automation of mandatory activity reporting compliance with Corporate Reference Data Sets is essential for patient level and aggregate activity data collection. The projects deliverables have been communicated via wide range mediums such info-graphics for ease of distribution to ensure departments, divisions and work units were able to easily digest the information. The supported by Elekta engagement with subject matter experts, clinical and technical reference groups and workshops.


The inclusion of such a diverse range of expertise has required commitment in maintaining communication resulting in the project being delivered on time.


The early involvement of expertise from more than forty groups both internal and external to Queensland health has provided a platform for future rollouts.
