Implant Billing is an important part of surgery support for the new Royal Adelaide Hospital, ensuring the hospital correctly recovers the costs of implants and consumables from insurers and other agencies.

The legacy system at the old Royal Adelaide Hospital responsible for billing surgical implants was not migrated when the new Royal Adelaide Hospital was opened in September last year, and a new system was required. A new Skyve application was built and put into production in 6 weeks by 1.5 developers. The application is responsible for importing data from the corporate financial system, facilitating data entry of paper records of the surgeries, and exporting to the patient administration system for billing.

The Implant Billing System at health is now live and generating invoices through EPAS.
