ACT Health Directorate inks $3.2m systems transformation deal


The Territory’s health services and policy department, ACT Health Directorate, has signed a four-year, $3.2 million deal with TechnologyOne to overhaul its ageing inventory management system. 

The new rollout will provide ACT’s health department with a new end-to-end enterprise software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution incorporating supply chain, prosthesis management, business intelligence and analytics, replacing the Health Directory’s longstanding, on-prem-based inventory management system. 
Winning an individual bid for the Health Directory’s tender, TechnologyOne said it will “seamlessly [manage] the full supply chain lifecycle of all ACT hospitals” without other delivery partners required.

Sandra Cook, Acting CIO of the ACT Health Directorate said TechnologyOne’s SaaS platform will provide “an improved and integrated user experience to assist with the tracking and usage of valuable health supplies.”

“ACT Health develops strategies and sets the direction to ensure services meet community needs and expectations. Our goal is to ensure the health system is innovative, effective and sustainable now and in the future,” she said.

Stuart MacDonald, TechnologyOne’s Chief Operating Officer, expects its systems overhaul to “improve user experience, simplify administration and enhance inventory processes.”

“ACT Health recognised the benefit of our extensive experience with the healthcare sector and across all levels of government,” MacDonald said.
