Deliver Phase 2019

Build and configure the Acacia digital health system

Improving Government Services

Initiative

Build, configure and test the Acacia digital health system under the Core Clinical Systems Replacement Program.

Overview

The design phase for Acacia is complete, incorporating over 4600 detailed functional design requirements.

The vendor has commenced building the prototype of the system and the configuration and testing phases will progress over 2019-20.

A staged rollout of the system to NT hospitals is scheduled to commence in 2021 and conclude in 2022.

Benefits

Acacia will remove multiple aging legacy systems, provide digital health records across all NT Health services and facilitate improved client outcomes.

Acacia will provide comprehensive digital information to clinicians at point-of-care across the spectrum of NT Government health services. This will enable better clinical servicing and lower risks.

Acacia requires more than 100 new jobs over the life of the program. This necessitates extensive engagement of ICT professionals, working across multiple project streams and disciplines. Almost all engagements are through Territory enterprises with ICT professionals based in Darwin, providing significant value into the ICT industry, expanding local ICT capability and upskilling opportunities over the program.
