ACT Health implements Miya Precision to improve patient care

Alcidion today announced that ACT Health went live with Miya Precision at two campuses – Canberra Hospital and University of Canberra Hospital – covering more than 600 beds.

Graphical dashboards based on smart technology will support proactive management of the patient journey, while coordinated online bed management will contribute to patient flow and align allocations, so patients receive optimal care.

Miya Precision will ensure clinicians are aware of the current patient and bed status, improving communication and visibility of patient flow across the health service to streamline the patient stay.

This implementation complements the existing use of Alcidion’s Patientrack solution and is the first step in a five-year agreement.

‘The management of the patient’s journey through digital future ready technology is a core component of our Digital Health Strategy’, said ACT Health CIO, Mr Peter O’Halloran.

Some of the benefits that ACT Health are aiming to realise through this implementation include:

  • Improved patient experience
  • Improved platform for real-time staff collaboration
  • Easier access to current status details during rounding and handover
  • Expected reduction in average length of stay with proactive discharge management
  • Reduced number of patient transfers and outliers through digital bed allocation

Alcidion’s Miya Precision leverages the capability FHIR (Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources) to overcome interoperability challenges, source relevant data and create clinical events. The information is presented to clinicians in a meaningful user interface that highlights important information.

Managing Director of Alcidion, Kate Quirke said, “This is a significant milestone in our longstanding and productive relationship with ACT Health. We are excited to continue our collaborative engagement to improve clinical workflows and patient outcomes, and Miya Precision will further this by providing ACT Health with access to real-time information that will directly contribute to improved patient care.”
