Leidos Australia has announced Australian companies MediRecords, Coviu, and Nous as core partners for its Joint Project 2060 (JP2060) Phase 4 team.
“Leidos has created an exceptional team to deliver this critical capability to the ADF,” Christine Zeitz, Chief Executive for Leidos Australia, said. “This includes partnering with leading Australian SMEs, within the health sector, who we will further support through our Global Supply Chain Program.”
The next phase of JP2060 under Phase 4 will see a Health Knowledge Management (HKM) solution put in place for the ADF.
JP2060 Phase 4 seeks to acquire and sustain a commercial, information technology (IT), enterprise knowledge solution that captures health data, and collates and manages the information across the ADF health care continuum within the deployed and non-deployed, garrison environment.
The solution will be required to provide greater healthcare business functionality, utilise an efficient health informatics process and enable efficient and safe, evidenced based, patient-centric care.
The JP2060 partnership brings together healthcare experts from MediRecords, providing the primary and allied health care solutions; Coviu, providing the telemedicine capability; and Nous, leading the organisational change management to support the delivery of business transformation.
Leidos previously announced it was working with Cerner and Henry Schein, who are part of the Leidos Partnership for Defense Health. In 2015, the partnership was awarded a contract by the US Department of Defense to deliver the MHS GENESIS solution, an electronic health record and care delivery system designed to transform the delivery of care for nearly 10 million service personnel and their families.
The MHS GENESIS system is expected to be fully deployed across the U.S. military health system by the end of 2023. In Australia, Cerner is currently delivering electronic health solutions to public and private health clinics across NSW, Victoria, Queensland and SA.
