Upgraded health service for ADF

Healthcare informatics enterprise Alcidion has signed an extended contract with Leidos Australia to support healthcare service delivery for the Australian Defence Force (ADF).

The extension to the existing agreement includes additional scope for the delivery of a Health Knowledge Management System. The new system is designed to ensure that critical, relevant medical information can be shared between Defence and its allies in the treatment of ADF members and that a consistent longitudinal health record is available to clinicians regardless of the setting in which they are operating.

The extension to the initial contract with Leidos Australia will provide additional scope for the JP2060 Phase 4 project over 57 months comprising the addition of Miya Observations and Assessments modules as well as an expanded subscription for the Miya Precision platform.

Miya Observations, previously known as Patientrack, provides access to real-time vital signs data aligned with local workflows so that care teams can be responsive to patients most in need. Miya Assessments provides a standardised framework for risk assessment.

The Miya Precision platform is a smart clinical solution based on a FHIR-event platform that facilitates multiple clinical and operational applications, allowing clinicians to gain actionable insight by combining AI with data from a variety of systems.

The agreement increases the number of Miya Precision modules that will be used by Defence, with Miya Observations and Assessments now licensed for use in both Strategic Aeromedical Evacuation and Tactical Aeromedical Evacuation.

Alcidion will also provide ongoing support and maintenance services to ensure the successful delivery and adoption of this additional scope.

Alcidion Group Managing Director and CEO Kate Quirke said, “We are proud to see Miya Precision play an increasingly crucial role in supporting the health outcomes of ADF personnel through the provision of consistent longitudinal health data for clinicians across varied care settings.”
