Acacia Digital Health System Progressing

Date: 23 Aug 2021

Digital Direction: Improving Government Services

Acacia is a contemporary digital health system that will replace NT Health’s current obsolete major systems and integrate a range of other specialised clinical systems to deliver a single, secure, electronic health record across hospitals, primary health care centres and community health services.

Acacia will improve patient and client outcomes, and continuity of care, by providing essential clinical information at the point of care.

The Acacia Read-only Electronic Patient Record was launched in late 2020. Clinicians in hospitals, remote clinics and urban health facilities across the Territory are now able to view the medical history, results and treatment for patients – information that was previously only accessible via multiple systems.

The roll out of patient administration, emergency triage, operating theatres and maternity functionality will commence in the second half of 2021.

Acacia has resulted in more than 150 specialist ICT jobs over the life of the program with the majority of these professionals engaged through Territory enterprises.
