ADELAIDE TECH COMPANY SECURES $2.35M CONTRACT
Adelaide based Alcidion Group Limited (ASX: ALC) has secured a $2.35m contract with Western Health to utilise Alcidion's tech in Victorian hospitals.

The agreement will incorporate Alcidion's iPad technology in public hospital facilities in the western suburbs of Melbourne along with the Footscray, Sunshine and Williamstown Hospitals, as well as the Sunbury day facility.

Alcidion's 'Miya' platform provides data to manage patient care, giving clinicians an easy way to access individual patient information on mobile devices at the point of care, and at computer work stations distributed around the hospital.

CEO of Alcidion, Mr Ray Blight, welcomed the agreement made with Western Health.

"We are very pleased to have Western Health extend their relationship with Alcidion," said Blight.

"Western Health should be commended on their commitment to excellence in innovation and Alcidion is privileged to be working closely on these ground-breaking initiatives."

The software's data access includes clinical information such as pathology and radiology results, as well as access to clinical documentation.

The program will also assist the Emergency Departments, allowing clinical staff to quickly identify patients nearing the National Emergency Access Target and plan accordingly.

The improvements in hospital patient flow were integral to the agreement, said Executive Director of Operations at Western Health, Russell Harrison.

"Efficiency improvements are by far the most significant driver for investments in patient flow solutions," said Harrison.

"Healthcare organisations are focused on improving bed turnaround times and reducing patient wait times."

The contract is for an initial three-year term at $1.45 million, with Western Health holding the option to extend the agreement for $450,000 per annum for the following two consecutive years.
