NZ launch of InterSystems’ cloud-based integration engine
InterSystems has launched in New Zealand its managed integration engine cloud service, HealthShare Health Connect Cloud.
The platform-as-a-solution streamlines interoperability and data integration between clinical systems and applications. It also manages cloud migration infrastructure, enabling providers to “more quickly and easily connect distributed datasets, efficiently move workloads and information across cloud solutions and on-premise services.”
The company introduced the data integration engine to the country following increased demand for healthcare interoperability, particularly the HL7 FHIR data sharing standard.
WA Health extends cloud contract with Atos
Atos will continue delivering managed services, hybrid cloud, and core infrastructure services to Health Support Services (HSS), the ICT service provider for WA Health, following a contract extension.
The French IT company was recently awarded a contract worth A$242 M ($159 million) to continue supporting the digitalisation of the WA public health system for the next five years.
It has been working with HSS on the digital transformation of WA Health since 2019. That initial contract was for the delivery of private cloud, managed public cloud, hybrid cloud orchestration, co-location and managed services for over 2,000 servers, hosting of over 1,000 applications, and fully managed public cloud services utilising three hyperscalers.
Victoria to complete Altera EMR rollout across Gippsland
The state government of Victoria has committed to finishing the deployment of an integrated EMR system across the rural region of Gippsland.
It recently announced A$12 million in funding over four years to support health services in the region to upgrade their systems. This includes the rollout of Altera Digital Health’s Sunrise EMR to remaining health services under the Gippsland Health Alliance (GHA): Gippsland Southern Health Service, Kooweerup Regional Health Service, Omeo District Health, Orbost Regional Health, South Gippsland Hospital, and Yarram and District Health Service.
This comes almost a year after the GHA rolled out the EMR solution across major regional and subregional health services under its wing.
The GHA implementation, Altera claims, is the widest EMR deployment on Microsoft Azure in Australia.
First go-live of cloud-based chemo prescribing solution in SA
Altera has also started delivering an enterprise chemotherapy prescribing system to South Australian hospitals with a first go-live done at Lyell McEwin Hospital and Mount Gambier and Districts Health Service.
In 2021, the company, which exclusively distributes the iQemo system in Australia and New Zealand, won the competitive tender to deliver the end-to-end solution, which includes predefined regimens, prescribing, scheduling and dispensing, and chemotherapy administration and reporting.
A rollout across regional hospitals and health centres is now underway with implementation at major sites such as Royal Adelaide and Flinders hospitals set for the first quarter of 2024.
Cubiko releases MyMedicare module
GP intelligence platform Cubiko has introduced a new module to support clinics in their implementation of MyMedicare.
MyMedicare is a voluntary patient registration model launched by the Australian government as part of broader efforts to strengthen the Medicare insurance scheme.
In helping “formalise” the connection between patients and their GPs, the free MyMedicare module on Cubiko allows practices to directly import CSV lists of registered patients from MyMedicare in the Health Professional Online Services, doing away with the administrative burden of registering patients to their clinics manually. It also provides actionable insights into various patient cohorts.
Additionally, the module, which is available on the Cubiko Assist Dashboard, has tools that aid in identifying and enrolling patients with upcoming appointments who are eligible but not yet registered for MyMedicare.
