Transforming Access to Health Care Data


Launch of Improvement Foundation’s New Patient Data Platform powered by Telstra Health

Transforming Access to Health Care Data

Australian health services are now able to obtain real time health data from disparate primary and secondary healthcare software systems, transforming the way that data is collected and accessed from medical software systems.

The Improvement Foundation, Australia’s leading provider of quality improvement solutions for the healthcare sector, have joined forces with Telstra Health, Australia’s biggest digital health company, to release Elicio.

Rather than having to rely on traditional data extraction software to extract and analyse data from medical software systems, Elicio can directly collect and aggregate real time data from general practices, hospitals, pharmacies, radiology and aged care software systems, providing clinicians with a view of their patients’ health journey beyond their own health service.

With increasingly complex population health needs, Elicio will keep doctors in general practices and hospitals at the forefront in delivering best practice in patient centred care. Additionally with the use of the Improvement Foundation’s extensive collection of quality and safety data sets, clinicians can assess and benchmark their performance and reporting of all major diseases across the primary and secondary health care sector using real time data.

“This is a major step forward in providing a real solution for a range of service providers including regional health authorities as well as private health groups. This is a wonderful opportunity to make a real difference in how care is delivered and managed for the benefit of providers and patients. It is a cost effective and agile solution that provides an integrated solution for the often fragmented health system.”, said David Wright, Chair, Improvement Foundation.

Elicio will be available through the Improvement Foundation.

Media are invited to attend the launch of Elicio. Further information about Elicio is available here.
