A new project aimed at improving coordination and communication between service providers in the health sector could help to deliver better, more efficient health care for Australian consumers.

The Health Value Chain Management Project is supported with a $200,000 grant from the Australian Government’s Information Technology Online (ITOL) Program.

The project will see the Australian Network of Healthcare Providers (ANHP) and the Boeing Company work with the Uniting Health Care Group’s St Andrews facility to look at how technology can transform health service delivery.

The project will bring hospitals, health workers, private suppliers, general practitioners together to share a common approach to the way they communicate and manage information.

It will apply Boeing’s network-centric approach and expertise, developed for the United States military, to an Australian health setting. Boeing will invest $5.6 million in the project.

The Federal Government says Boeing plans to extend its Phantom Works research and development operations to support this project. This is good news and will add to the wealth of ICT research and development expertise in Australia.

It says that if successful, the Health Value Chain Management Project, led by clinicians and health service providers, will improve the coordination and connection between all parties involved in the health value chain.

This will provide efficiencies and quality improvements to the way health care is managed and delivered in Australia.

The project will be conducted in collaboration with the Australian Government to ensure that it develops in a way that is consistent with the evolving HealthConnect system and business architecture.
