US-based global health information technology company InterSystems has been selected by the Northern Territory Government to implement its TrakCare core clinical systems renewal programme (CCSRP).

The TrakCare unified clinical information system will be implemented at every point of care across all public health facilities in the Northern Territory, including the five existing public hospitals, the new Palmerston Regional Hospital (to be completed in 2018), 54 remote health centres and all community-based health services, including the most remote locations of the 1.3-million-sq.-km. territory.

Through the agreement with InterSystem, the Northern Territory will become the first Australian state or territory with a single system for all of its public healthcare sites.  

CCSRP is the “largest ever” IT reform in the Territory, according to health minister Natasha Fyles, and is designed to improve health outcomes for all Territorians by promoting efficiency, effectiveness and integration throughout the public healthcare system.

InterSystem says NT Health aims to deliver better overall experiences for every Territorian through a single, end-to-end patient information system to co-ordinate care.

“InterSystems is proud to support this major initiative to improve the public health system,” said Steve Garrington, vice-president of international business for InterSystems.

“Key to our partnership with NTG and future service excellence is the implementation of one information system suitable for hospitals, non-acute facilities and primary care centres. There will be challenges, with some very remote sites, which we look forward to overcoming though our long term engagement and collaboration with NT Health.”

“InterSystems was selected as the preferred provider, among highly competitive international vendors, through a robust procurement process which was supported by a wider group of frontline NT Heath Staff,” said Associate Professor Nadarajah Kangaharan, Clinical Sponsor for the CCSRP.

“As Australia’s first end-to-end fully integrated ICT solution, once implemented, it is expected to support a highly efficient, safe and quality healthcare delivery to Territorians with ability to monitor clinical outcomes.”
