Orion Health’s Rhapsody integration software, in a partnership with Fujitsu Australia, has been selected to replace Queensland Health’s legacy middleware system.

According to the New Zealand health technology firm, this is the first step in a large program of work that will incrementally replace Queensland Health’s IT infrastructure.

Fujitsu Australia is providing the implementation and change management services with support from Orion Health’s Australian implementation services team.

“We are thrilled to be working with Fujitsu to deliver the first stage of Queensland Health’s future interoperability platform,” says Darren Jones, Senior Vice President of Asia Pacific, Orion Health.

“Together we have a shared vision for a fully integrated state wide health system and Orion Health is excited to have the opportunity to provide the foundation for this with our Rhapsody solution.”

Queensland Health is responsible for the public health system serving Queensland’s population of 4.8 million people and under the first phase of the program, the organisation will refine and confirm its requirements, along with the solution design and implementation approach.

Terms of the deal will see Queensland Health’s CTO Colin McCririck, chief architect Brendon Kirby and its IT team will take a co-design approach with Orion Health and Fujitsu, to mitigate any risks and technical issues.

Jones says all parties expect to complete the first phase by June next year and begin installing the new middleware after that.

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

​As the channel changes and industry voices deepen, the need for clarity and insight heightens. Market misconceptions talk of an “under pressure” distribution space, with competitors in that fateful “race for relevance” across New Zealand. Amidst the cliched assumptions however, distribution is once again showing its strength, as a force to be listened to, rather than questioned. Traditionally, the role was born out of a need for vendors and resellers to find one another, acting as a bridge between the testing lab and the marketplace. Yet despite new technologies and business approaches shaking the channel to its very core, distributors remain tied to the epicentre - providing the voice of reason amidst a seismic industry shift. In looking across both sides of the vendor and partner fences, the middle concept of the three-tier chain remains centrally placed to understand the metrics of two differing worlds, as the continual pulse checkers of the local channel. This exclusive Reseller News Roundtable, in association with Dicker Data and rhipe, examined the pivotal role of distribution in understanding the health of the channel, educating from the epicentre as the market transforms at a rapid rate.
