IBM scores $23.6m e-health deal

Health records set to go viral

Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

IBM has secured a $23.6m dollar contract with the National E-Health Transition Authority (NEHTA) to design and build Australia’s National Authentication Service for Health (NASH) project.

The government project will provide the first nationwide secure and authenticated service for healthcare organisations and personnel to exchange e-health information. The programme will eventually cover over 600,000 Australian doctors, nurses and allied health providers.

The project will be the foundation of transforming Australia’s health system into an e-health system deploying initiatives like a Personally Controlled Electronic Health Record (PCeHR), and aims to drive the smarter use of data, information and communications in healthcare delivery.

NEHTA was established in 2005 by the Australian federal, state and territory governments to identify and develop the foundations necessary for an e-health system.

Under the deal, IBM will tip in its combined hardware, software and services capabilities to manage the project delivery of the NASH system for Australia’s healthcare providers. This will include industry and technology consulting, security and access management technologies, and IT infrastructure management services.

“Our agreement with IBM enables NEHTA to build a system that will give healthcare professionals timely and secure access to appropriate patient information,” said NEHTA CEO Peter Fleming. ®
