Queensland Health looking for help with Rhapsody roll-out
Queensland Health has put out an offer for a service provider with design, build, test, operate and migration capabilities to help with its statewide enterprise integration platform replacement project, which will see the existing JCAPS-based middleware system replaced with Orion Health's Rhapsody integration engine for clinical systems.
Orion Health won the tender to replace the current mixture of Oracle's eGATE, JCAPS and Glassfish in late 2015. The project is essential to the eventual replacement of the HBCIS patient administration system but more immediately to the new laboratory information system, the winning vendor for which is expected to be announced shortly.
Queensland Health says it has completed the planning and design phase of the project and expects the implementation phase to begin in May, to be completed in two years. While Fujitsu is also involved in an implementation and change management role, Queensland Health has now gone to market on a standing offer basis for extra capability in integration design-build-test-operate and migration services.
The preferred supplier will provide a scalable team of professionals with proficiency in application software development and support services, specifically in integration systems, integration migration and integration design-build-test-operate capabilities.
The project is part of Queensland Health's $30 million interoperability project, which has been established to replace a number of core enterprise systems and is itself part of a 10-year, $1.26 billion ICT investment strategy.
The offer closes on April 3 with a start date expected in May.
