Alcidion ALC MidCentral District Health Board DHB

Alcidion Group Limited (ASX: ALC) has executed a contract with the MidCentral District Health Board in New Zealand to utilise the company’s technology across their public hospital facilities.

Key Highlights:

  • $NZD1.60m contract to deploy Miya Platform throughout MidCentral DHB.
  • Real-Time Visualisation of Inpatient and ED Patient Journey.
  • Clinicians can access individual patient information on mobile devices.
  • First deployment of Miya Platform into New Zealand.

The Miya platform will provide all the necessary data to manage the flow of patient care, from the reception of the patient (Emergency Department or elective admissions) through the hospital wards and specialist clinical areas, through to discharge.

The Miya platform will be integrated across a broad cross section of Clinical Information Systems, including WebPas, HOMER, Medlab Central, CareStream RIS/PACS, NZ Blood Services, Broadway RIS, Pacific RIS and the Variance Management System for Nursing Workload Data.

Clinicians can access individual patient information on mobile devices at the point of care, on computer workstations distributed across the hospitals, and on large format digital displays in shared work areas.

The mobile EMR provides access to clinical information such as pathology and radiology results as well as access to clinical documentation. Furthermore, the platform identifies emerging clinical risk and highlights “at risk” patients to the clinicians.

A key aspect of the solution is to provide real time intelligence to the MidCentral Hospital Operations Centre, the focal point for supporting the most efficient allocation of hospital resources to help ensure a fast, safe, clinically effective journey for all patients.

The mobile bed management component of Alcidion’s solution provides an overview of capacity and demand ubiquitously across the hospital.

Electronic Patient Journey Boards will be deployed in over 20 ward and clinical service locations, with service specific configurations for the Emergency Department, Medical Access and Planning Unit, Maternity, Children’s, Mental Health, Medical and Surgical Units.

The platform will be available across over 130 Apple iPads and 75 large format digital displays that will be deployed in every ward and clinical service area thus saving clinicians and care team members valuable time in their patient care interactions.

MidCentral are intending to review the supply of the integrated Miya Smartpage Clinical Communication and Collaboration solution as a possible future extension to the HOC solution.

CEO of Alcidion Group Limited, Mr Ray Blight commented, “We are delighted to see the MidCentral District Health Board select the Alcidion solution. Alcidion is privileged to be working with Mid Central on these ground-breaking initiatives.”

“Improving the patient journey throughout our hospital is by far the most significant driver for investment in the Hospital Operations Centre. More specifically, we are focused on removing blocks in our system, reducing patient wait times, and optimising the availability and use of hospital beds.

We are delighted to be working with Alcidion in this cutting-edge solution”, Chief Executive Officer, MidCentral District Health Board, Kathryn Cook said in a statement.

New Zealand is home to 84 Public Hospitals, distributed across 20 District Health Boards.
