Following the release of the request for tender for Phase 3 of the Deployable Health Capability (DHC) project, JP 2060, the Department of Defence has released a notice regarding Phase 4 of the joint project, the Health Knowledge Management System (HKMS).
Phase 4 will be the underlying IT information management system that will tie in all the physical aspects of the defence health system.
The project aims to acquire and sustain a commercial, information technology, enterprise knowledge solution that captures health data, and collates and manages the information across the tri-service health care continuum within the deployed and non-deployed, garrison environment.
This solution would be required to provide greater healthcare business functionality, utilise an efficient health informatics process and enable improved clinical medical decisions for patients. It would also be required to interface with Defence ICT platforms, allied coalition partners, Australian healthcare providers and nominated government agencies.
The industry briefing will be conducted on the 26 July 2017 at 12pm, at a location to be advised.
Phase 3 of JP 2060 aims to introduce an entire system (mission system), inclusive of all medical and dental equipment (‘a turn key’ solution) and designed to operate as an integrated capability.
The RFT was released mid-June and has a closing date of 9 November 2017.
So far, Airbus and Siemens Healthineers have partnered in a teaming arrangement to jointly bid for the project, along with Saab, Aspen Medical, Philips and Marshall.
Leidos Australia has also sought out Australian SMEs to facilitate its bid for the project.
