Alcidion, Olinqua partner to reduce hospital wait times

Alcidion Group Limited, a provider of FHIR-native solutions for health care, and hospital automation company Olinqua, have launched a technology solution — Miya Central — under a strategic partnership.

The solution is designed to provide hospitals with predictive and prescriptive analytic capability to enable the identification of operational inefficiencies, make data-driven decisions and drive continuous improvement.

“Our mission is to improve patient outcomes by enabling healthcare organisations to harness the power of their data, and we are building the world’s first plug-and-play hospital operations product — an intelligent command centre — that will revolutionise the way hospitals manage and optimise their operations. This solution will be designed to improve patient care, enhance experience for care workers, and of course, shorten ED waiting times due to more streamlined processes and communication,” said Group Managing Director and CEO of Alcidion Kate Quirke.

The solution targets: access block and ramping — currently patients can wait more than 8 hours for a bed, and according to some reports, more than 13 hours for initial care; patient flow and length of stay (LoS) — coordination across the patient journey can help to reduce length of stay and release time to care; and discharge management and readmittance — studies show 50% of post-discharge adverse events can be traced back to communication breakdowns during discharge.

Miya Central aims to provide real-time metrics and visualisation of the current state of a healthcare facility. It will enable more accurate tracking of high-value assets, improved patient and staff safety, and sophisticated automated workflows. It will also allow regional and national provider networks to obtain insights from all their hospitals, which drives coordinated improvements across the system.

“The consolidation of hospital-wide data will empower both automated processes and human decision-making, providing hospital leaders with full transparency across clinical and operational fronts,” said CEO of Olinqua Jemma Iles.

“It will enable swift responses to medical and engineering emergencies across the hospital, reduce ambulance ramping and patient flow delays, and generally optimise other day-to-day business processes.”

To deliver this vision, Alcidion and Olinqua teams have worked collaboratively to layer an intelligent, unified visualisation fabric over existing Alcidion and Olinqua products alongside data from other clinical, operational, facility and safety system-of-record solutions — in a common-off-the-shelf (COTS) product.

The businesses combined the clinical integration capabilities of Alcidion’s Miya Precision platform with the operational integration capabilities of Olinqua’s intelligent automation platform. The combined data presents decision-makers and staff with rapid and transparent monitoring of patient and healthcare system status, including both patient-centric care data and core facility information like power, HVAC, security and fire alarms.

The initial launch of Alcidion and Olinqua’s new solution was planned to coincide with the MedInfo 2023 conference in Sydney on 8–12 July.
