Medicross Strathpine, a medical practice located in Brisbane’s North, was recently named a finalist for the 2021 Pen CS Awards.

The National event – which took place virtually on Thursday 13 September - recognises excellence in data-driven quality improvement in General Practice and Aboriginal Medical Services, by using health informatics.

“We were touched to hear the stories from General Practices and Aboriginal Medical Services and to learn about the challenges they face and how they are using health informatics to support patient outcomes,” said Edweana Wenkart, Pen CS CEO.

“At Pen CS, we build technology solutions; but they are doing the hard work, listening to patients every day and especially now, rolling out the vaccine. We congratulate all the finalists and winners who may all be admired for their efforts.”

Medicross Strathpine are utilising Topbar – a Pen CS software product – to prompt GPs via internal messaging, to add key clinical information when it’s missing from a patient’s health record.

This is one of many initiatives Medicross Strathpine have introduced to drive quality improvement in their practice.

Nominations for awards were made by Primary Health Networks, Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisations, or a self-nomination by the Aboriginal Medical Service or General Practice themselves.

The winners of nine award categories received a trophy and a $500 cash prize.
