Investing in health outcomes of Defence personnel

DEFENCE is seeking an industry partner to acquire a new system to improve the delivery of health care to Australian Defence Force (ADF) personnel.

Minister for Veterans and Defence Personnel, Darren Chester said the new Health Knowledge Management system will continue to put patients first by improving the management of their health information.

“This project is a significant Government investment in the health and wellbeing of Defence personnel and will provide members with a modern and innovative health system,” Mr Chester said.

The Health Knowledge Management system, to be delivered as part of Joint Project 2060, will replace the current Defence eHealth System to ensure that health services continue to meet the evolving clinical and operational needs of the ADF.

“The solution is firmly focused on quality, safety and patient outcomes across the ADF, for both deployed and non-deployed personnel,” Mr Chester said.

“It will be focussed on the patients themselves and will securely capture, collate and manage health data to better support patients, practitioners and the ADF in the delivery of health services.”

Submissions for this program close 30 August 2019.
