Leidos Australia has been awarded a contract by the Department of Defence to deliver a health knowledge management system to support healthcare services across the ADF under Joint Project 2060 Phase 4.
The contract value is $299 million. Work has started on the project, with initial operating capability planned for November 2023 and final operating capability in 2025.
The health knowledge management system will replace the ADF’s legacy electronic health record product with a 'modern, patient-centric health solution'. The company says 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.
For the first time, an electronic health solution will be delivered into the deployed environment to record the delivery of healthcare by ADF clinicians from point of injury throughout the evacuation chain into rehabilitation and recovery. According to Leidos, this will ensure all relevant clinical information can be recorded and included in a member’s health record to facilitate appropriate, on-going care.
As Prime Systems Integrator, Leidos Australia will lead a team including:
• Alcidion Group, an Australian provider of intelligent informatics software for high-performance healthcare;
• Ascention, an Australian provider of solutions for data, analytics and tactical planning;
• Coviu Global, an Australian provider of telehealth technology;
• Fred IT Group, Australia’s largest dedicated IT solution provider to the pharmacy industry;
• MediRecords, an Australian provider of intuitive, easy to use clinical practice management software;
• Nous Group, an Australian specialist in leading and delivering transformational change;
• Philips Electronics Australia, an Australian health technology company and provider of radiology solutions
• Precision Medical, an Australian provider of software that monitors, traces and reports on medical assets; and
• Titanium Solutions Australia, a New Zealand provider of oral health management software.
Leidos Australia says it will also be engaging: Cerner, an American supplier of health information technology services, devices and hardware; OutSystems, a low code solution platform providing case management and a compensation portal; and QlikTech Australia, an Australian supplier of business intelligence solutions.
“Leidos Australia looks forward to working with Defence and our team of exceptional health sector partners to deliver this critical capability to the ADF," Leidos Australia Chief Executive Paul Chase said.
“Our team’s health expertise, as well as Leidos’ vast Defence experience, will deliver a modern, sovereign solution that will meet the evolving healthcare needs of the ADF."
