Alcidion technology adopted by NT Health Department

Alcidion Group will roll out its Miya platform across the Royal Darwin and Alice Springs Hospitals after signing a $525,000 contract with the Northern Territory Department of Health.

The platform collects data and builds clinical intelligence to manage patient care, from the emergency department through to the hospital wards. Clinicians can access individual patient information on mobile devices and view clinical information such as pathology and radiology results, as well as access clinical documentation. The platform also identifies emerging clinical risk and highlights at-risk patients.

In the emergency department, clinical staff can quickly identify those patients nearing the national emergency access target (NEAT) and plan care accordingly. The platform provides an overview of capacity and demand at both the ward and unit level, providing real-time information about open and available beds, patients coming in, and potential and confirmed ward discharges.

Ray Blight, CEO of Alcidion Group, said, “We are delighted to extend our electronic journey board offering to Northern Territory Health as part of our ongoing relationship. This contract comes in quick succession to the recently awarded $1.75 million contract for Miya order sets, which implements best practice order sets for ED pathology. Journey boards, order sets and Miya ED all operate on the Miya platform installed with NT Health.”

Healthcare organisations are focused on improving bed turnaround times and reducing patient wait times. According to the Northern Territory ReADI program, since implementing the Alcidion solution, the NEAT performance has more than doubled from below 20% to 41%.

According to Markets and Markets, the global patient flow management solutions market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 22% from 2014 to 2019, meaning it will increase from $251 million in 2014 to $678.4 million by 2019.

In the May 2016 Budget, the Northern Territory Government committed $186 million over five years to renew core clinical systems.

The Northern Territory Department of Health employs 6323 staff and manages five public hospitals. It is currently constructing the new Palmerston Regional Hospital, the Northern Territory’s most technologically advanced facility.
