NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Altera Digital Health (formerly the Allscripts Hospitals and Large Physician Practices business segment) has won a competitive tender to deliver the Victorian Department of Health’s state-wide Health Information Exchange (HIE) solution. It seeks to address one of the biggest challenges in healthcare – the sharing of health information across disparate systems for clinical care. The platform supports Victoria’s digital health roadmap, which prioritizes the availability of patient health information across acute care providers.
The platform will initially provide hospital clinicians with a more complete view of a patient’s public pathology reports. It can be expanded to securely share other clinical information at the point of care. Secure and timely access to patient information across different care settings enables clinicians to be better informed. This makes clinical decisions and supports safer, while enabling patient health outcomes to be improved.
Dani Arousi, Altera Digital Health’s Global Commercial Director for the dbMotion™ Solution, said that the Victorian Department of Health’s selection of dbMotion confirms the platform’s status as the industry benchmark for clinical information sharing.
“dbMotion is a world-class, proven and enabling solution for healthcare organizations globally to create, build and view a patient’s virtual longitudinal record, and will be a milestone development in Victoria’s digital health journey.”
Altera Digital Health demonstrated that its solution had assisted healthcare organizations and governments of similar size to the Victorian Department of Health to meet their digital health strategic goals, ultimately improving clinician access to patient clinical information no matter where the patient is across their continuum of care.
“We have extensive experience in aggregating clinical information from disparate systems and creating robust longitudinal records across a range of complex acute settings. dbMotion has been implemented in world-leading healthcare organizations in Israel, the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom, empowering the Department to leverage a global network to establish a comprehensive and secure HIE platform for Victoria,” added Mr. Arousi.
Altera’s dbMotion solution has already partnered with South Western Sydney Primary Health Network, the first Asia-Pacific implementation of the solution. The New South Wales HIE implementation aggregates primary care clinical records and enables hospital clinicians to view a patient’s primary care record at the point of care.
Altera Digital Health boasts a sizeable footprint in Victoria, where its cloud-hosted Sunrise EHR and other solutions are active in a variety of sites, including Albury Wodonga Health, Grampians Health, Barwon Health, Epworth HealthCare, Gippsland Health Alliance, Royal Victorian Eye and Ear Hospital & Western Health.
