Alcidion Group Ltd has won a major contract with Dartford and Gravesham NHS Trust in the UK, under which Alcidion will deploy the first Miya Precision, Patientrack and Smartpage installation outside of Australia.
Alcidion’s five-year contract with Dartford and Gravesham is valued at £1.16 million (~$2.1 million).
The Dartford and Gravesham NHS Trust is a forward-looking NHS Trust with a highly ambitious clinically led ICT strategic plan to achieve the NHS’s Five Year Forward View to be Paperless at the Point of Care by 2020. They plan to achieve full digital maturity through the application of seamlessly integrated technology solutions and enabling industry partnerships, to become a digital exemplar at the forefront of the use of agile information and technology. The Trust has an annual budget of about £121 million and employs 1,900 staff. It has 800 beds across three hospitals and a specialist nurse-led Unit. The Trust serves a population of half a million people.
Under the partnership, Alcidion will deploy the Miya Precision platform integrated with Smartpage and Patientrack in all wards across the entire Trust, to enable safer and more efficient patient care, reduce the burden of paper and deliver state-of-the-art information and technology to frontline clinical staff. The product suite will provide electronic patient observations, electronic paper charts, clinical assessments, clinical noting, patient flow, bed management and electronic discharge summaries for GPs. The clinical team will have online access to patient information 24 hours a day, where and when required to provide the optimum level of patient care through mobile computing.
Dartford and Gravesham NHS Trust Associate Director of Digital Transformation Neil Perry said,
“Following a competitive tender process, we are very pleased to be working with Alcidion to implement its leading product suite across our hospitals.
Alcidion’s solutions are the right fit to help us meet our commitment to use digital technology to improve patient outcomes and share these improvements with other NHS Trusts. Alcidion is a long-term solution partner for the Trust, and we believe its technology can empower our clinical staff to make informed decisions and focus on what they do best – deliver excellent patient care. We are very excited by the possibilities in the use of artificial intelligence and natural language processing offered by the Alcidion solution”
Alcidion’s Managing Director, Kate Quirke said:
“This is a major win for Alcidion. Although the company has a strong presence in the UK with Patientrack, this is the first integrated installation of the complete product platform – Miya Precision, Patientrack and Smartpage – outside of Australia.
This contract is solid proof that we can effectively leverage our reputation and relationships in the UK and introduce an innovative new technology solution to the UK market.”
Alcidion’s UK General Manager Donald Kennedy said:
“We are delighted to be partnering with Dartford and Gravesham, which is a new customer for the Group, and being one of the more progressive trusts, will become an important reference site as one of the pioneers of using real-time data and mobile devices to improve patient safety.”
