Australian software vendor PowerHealth Solutions has signed an exclusive distribution agreement with UK software vendor Datix to distribute the UK company’s patient safety software in Australia and New Zealand, to meet the growing demand for patient safety in this region.
Healthcare is a high-risk industry with 1 in 10 hospital patients in developed countries being unintentionally harmed while receiving care. The Datix patient safety system enables hospitals to understand their organisational risk by integrating and analysing information from key information systems. Armed with this information, hospitals can identify and take action on specific priorities such as infection control, safe surgery, and health-care waste management.
Australia & New Zealand
With strong connections to the health industry and a large customer base, PowerHealth Solutions has the resources and expertise in healthcare consulting, project management and software support to successfully bring the UK patient safety system to Australia and New Zealand.
Local Distribution & Support
Australian and New Zealand hospitals and health departments will benefit by having a leading edge solution for patient safety from a well-known international developer such as Datix.
This solution is further strengthened with local distribution and support services from PowerHealth Solutions, which has an excellent track record in implementing enterprise systems.
PowerHealth Solutions Managing Director Patrick Power said, "PowerHealth Solutions is committed to helping hospitals and healthcare organisations improve efficiency, and patient safety is a natural extension to our product base of hospital costing and patient billing. We selected Datix based on the excellence of the product, as well as the company’s strong commitment to research and development. We look forward to a long and productive partnership."
Datix CEO Jonathan Hazan said, "Datix has a proven track record in patient safety software, with a state-wide implementation in South Australia. In PowerHealth Solutions, we have found a partner who shares our passion for helping to improve the healthcare system. I believe that our two companies, working in partnership, will be able to help deliver real benefits to patient safety in Australia and New Zealand."
