Alcidion Group Limited (ASX:ALC) has been selected as strategic solution partner for Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals NHS Trust in the UK, a contract valued at £574,000 (~A$1.03 million) over five years.

Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals NHS Trust selected Alcidion via a competitive tender process to implement its Patientrack software to improve patient safety and support clinicians in delivering better care.

Patientrack is being used widely by NHS hospitals to capture vital signs and other patient risk factors electronically – at the bedside – improving the timeliness and effectiveness of patient monitoring and improving clinical workflow. Patientrack also uses data analytics to provide doctors and nurses with early warning signs when patients are at risk.

The Trust has an ambitious “best of breed” ICT strategy to support its continuous process of improvement leading to measurable improvements for patients and staff. It has four hospitals, employs approximately 8,200 staff, and delivers specialist and tertiary services for patients from across the south east of England and is also the Major Trauma Centre for the region.

The Trust has a long-term approach to transforming hospital service for the better called the “Patient First Improvement System”, which aims to empower front line staff by equipping them with new tools, methods and a structured process that leads to measurable improvements for patients and staff.

Central to this transformation is the Trust’s role as an academic centre, being a provider of high-quality teaching, and a host hospital for cutting edge research and innovation. On this, it works in partnership with Brighton and Sussex Medical School, Health Education England, Kent, Surrey and Sussex Postgraduate Deanery and the Universities of Brighton and Sussex.

Ian Arbuthnot, the Trust’s director of information management and technology said: ‘Following a thorough selection process, we are very pleased to be working with Alcidion to implement its world-class mobile technology software solution across our hospitals.

“Alcidion’s Patientrack product will provide our clinicians with a solution that allows them to capture patients’ vital signs, automatically calculate the NHS’s NEWS2 (National Early Warning Score) and alert clinicians to deteriorating patients, through mobile devices.

“The system will also deliver a range of patient assessments for conditions such as Sepsis, and Acute Kidney Injury and many more that will reduce the burden of paperwork and deliver real-time information in an integrated patient view at the point of care’.

Alcidion’s Managing Director, Kate Quirke said: “We’re delighted to welcome Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals NHS Trust as a new client and partner. To have another NHS Trust contract with us further solidifies our position as one of the leading suppliers of e-observations and clinical documentation solutions and it is very pleasing to be an integral part of the digital transformation program taking place across the NHS.”
