Melbourne, Australia: Alcidion Group Limited has been selected as part of a global consortium to build a new Health Knowledge Management (HKM) system for the Australian Defence Force (ADF).
The HKM system will replace the ADF’s legacy electronic health record product with a modern, patient-centric health solution to enable better clinical decision-making and care for the ADF population.
In the consortium led by Leidos Australia, Alcidion’s Miya Precision platform will perform the critical role of aggregating data from consortium partner solutions and other systems in the Defence environment, to provide clinicians with a consolidated view of every participant’s health status and history.
The platform will record, store, aggregate and analyse health data for the ADF population from multiple care settings, including multidisciplinary primary care as well as emergency and hospital care, in both garrison and deployed domains.
Work has commenced on the project, with initial operating capability planned for November 2023 and final operating capability to be realised in 2025.
Alcidion’s contribution to the HKM forms a significant component of the contract issued to Leidos Australia by the ADF Chief Information Officer Group. Alcidion’s contract with Leidos Australia is over an initial six-year term, with further contract extensions and options to renew for up to 15 years.
Alcidion Group Managing Director and CEO Kate Quirke said: “This is a critical project for the Australian Defence Force that will improve the care delivered to current and past military personnel.
“We are proud to be making a leading contribution to the Health Knowledge Management system which will be delivered primarily by Australian companies. Our Miya Precision platform will consolidate data from partner systems to provide treating clinicians with a comprehensive and meaningful view of the ADF population and their interaction with their healthcare services.
“Importantly, our Miya Precision technology allows the platform to be accessible via a uniquely modern interface that is patient centric and aligned with the needs of clinicians.”
More than 95 per cent of the HKM project will be delivered by Australian companies. In addition to Alcidion and Leidos Australia, consortium partners include Ascention, Coviu Global, Fred IT Group, MediRecords, Nous Group, Philips Electronics Australia, Precision Medical and Titanium Solutions Australia, Cerner Corporation and QlikTech Australia.
