Qlik part of consortium to deliver ADF e-health project

Qlik has announced it will play a vital role in the transformation of the Australian Defence Force’s (ADF’s) e-health management system.

Under the JP2060 Ph4 project contract awarded by Australia’s Department of Defence, information technology, engineering and science firm Leidos Australia will lead a consortium, including Qlik, to deliver the Health Knowledge Management System (HKMS).

The seven-year project, valued at AU$329.6m overall, will replace the ADF’s legacy electronic health record product with a modern, patient-centric health solution. The new system will record, store, aggregate and analyse health data and information for the ADF population, unifying multidisciplinary primary and occupational care with emergency and hospital care to enable better clinical decision-making.

The JP2060 Ph4 project will create 187 full-time equivalent jobs across Canberra, Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney, with initial operating capabilities planned for November 2023.

“Qlik is extremely proud to be involved in this important healthcare project. We know the challenges faced by governments in leveraging population-level health data to improve the patient journey from primary to emergency care, rehabilitation to recovery. For defence personnel, that journey from the field through evacuation to hospital and recovery is especially complex,” said Paul Leahy, Country Manager, ANZ at Qlik.

“Having an intelligent, data-driven solution that strengthens e-health record keeping across those complex settings will be key to identifying and delivering appropriate care to those who serve.”
