NT to announce winner of $259m core clinical systems renewal tender this month
The newly elected Northern Territory government has committed to rolling out the massive Core Clinical Systems Renewal Program (CCSRP) despite its precarious budget situation, chipping in an extra $73 million to the original $186m price tag for the system, which will consolidate all of the NT’s public health clinical systems into a single ICT solution.
First announced last last May with a tender released in August, four shortlisted contenders are in the running for the five-year project with the successful tenderer expected to be announced in May. The shortlist includes local player Telstra Health, US EMR giants Epic and Allscripts, and fellow US company InterSystems, which markets the Australian-designed clinical system TrakCare.
