ACT to go to the cloud for $11m pathology system replacement
The ACT government has allocated $11.324 million over four years to replace the existing Kestral laboratory information system with a cloud-based solution.
ACT Health is expected to release a tender this year for the system, which it says will support the entire process of pathology services, from ordering and specimen collection through to testing, validation, reporting and billing.
Yesterday's territory budget also included the provision of $190,000 this year to continue to support the HealthPathways clinical referral portal for GPs, as well as $9.5m for health ICT upgrades, including the replacement of its purchasing and inventory control system and its hospital clinical communication system.
