NZ’s Orion Health secures 5-year Victorian contract

New Zealand healthcare provider Orion Health has inked a five-year contract with the Department of Health and Human Services in Victoria to deploy its flagship interoperability solution, Rhapsody Integration Engine, across the DHHS and 15 public health agencies.

Under the contract, Orion will partner with MKM Health, an Australasian IT technology company with extensive knowledge of the Victorian healthcare sector, to supply additional architecture, solution support and professional services capability.

The Victorian DHHS delivers programmes and services that support and enhance the health, well-being and safety of 6.2 million people.

The department announced the contract after seeking a health messaging integration application to replace a legacy solution, and to help with its state-wide Health ICT Strategic Framework to connect all systems across the state.

Orion Health general manager, Australia, Dr David Dembo, says the contract with DHHS is a significant deal for the company’s Australian business and it looks forward to working with the department and agencies on integration across the state.
