Highlights:

Alcidion Group Limited (ASX:ALC) is pleased to announce that it has signed a contract with East Lancashire Hospitals NHS Trust (East Lancashire Trust) for Patientrack (now Miya Observations and Assessments) and Smartpage, valued at $2.2M over 5 years.

East Lancashire Trust is a large, integrated health care organisation of 8,000 staff, providing acute, secondary and community healthcare for the 530,000 residents of East Lancashire and Blackburn with Darwen.

Patientrack will be used by nurses as they carry out crucial observations, integrating directly with devices used at the bedside to capture patients’ vital signs, automatically calculating a patient’s early warning score.

Smartpage – Alcidion’s smartphone and web-based secure messaging system for hospital communication and task management – will be deployed in parallel and integrated with Patientrack to push alerts to clinical teams if and when they need to take action for patient care.

East Lancashire Hospitals NHS Trust Chief Information Officer Mark Johnson said, “We are driving forward our ambitions to enhance patient care and improve working life for staff through digital technology, both locally and in collaboration with our ICS colleagues across the region. Patientrack, which has delivered impressive results for patient safety in dozens of other NHS hospitals, accompanied by Smartpage, will be an important part of that digital roadmap and the deployment of our local EPR. We are confident that the experiences and learning from the deployment will support the regional objectives of having consolidated information for all patients. These are mobile technologies that our clinicians want to use, that can help to alleviate pressure and remove manual processes, and that can have a very immediate impact on patient outcomes and safety.”

Alcidion Managing Director Kate Quirke said, “We are delighted to partner with East Lancashire Hospitals NHS Trust to support the delivery of better and safer patient care. Both Patientrack and Smartpage continue to open the door to new customer relationships, supporting the expansion of our presence in the UK.”
