ACT leading the way in patient safety with real-time information at the bedside

Adelaide, South Australia – Alcidion Group (ASX:ALC) is pleased to announce that it has signed a further  contract with ACT Health to implement Patientrack’s new Bed Board module. This Territory-wide project will form part of the overall Electronic Patient Journey Board solution, comprised of Miya Flow, Smartpage and Patientrack. The project will highlight risks as well as notify clinicians of changes to a patient’s health and  impediments to patient flow to ensure they are managed before they impact on the length of hospital stay.

Patientracks Bed Board module delivers real-time patient information by replacing the patient’s bedside whiteboard, which currently requires manual written updates from a nurse or clinician, with an electronic whiteboard or wall mounted iPad to improve patient safety. By taking real-time data feeds from multiple systems the Bed Board module displays critical patient information at the patient bedside including demographics to aid in Positive Patient Identification, patient location, estimated date of discharge, falls risk status, dietary requirements and mobility information.

The contract win includes a license to use the module across the Territory with the new University of Canberra Public Hospital as the initial site and the option for future implementation at The Canberra Hospital.

The contract also includes three years of support and implementation services. ACT Health have the option to extend the support beyond the three years.

Kate Quirke, Alcidion’s Chief Executive said, “Our relationship with ACT Health continues to go from strength to strength. We are really excited to be part of their digital health journey to improve health services for their patients and clinicians alike.”
