Senior Australians and native people poised to benefit from the latest research project.

The project will empower correct medications prescriptions for patients having kidney problems. In Tandem, the research institute with the University of South Australia and the Northern Territory Health is going to make this tool for the healthcare professionals.

Delivery of the standalone service will take place through an app program interface. It also makes integration easy with the already-existing dispensing or prescribing software systems.

After the analysis of the dispensing and medicine prescription’s context, they will make a renal dosage calculator algorithm formulated. However, it will base on the clinical data sets of NT Health and other medical knowledge databases. Then, stimulation of the tool’s impact will take place in the rural and urban primary clinics in South Australia and NT.

There is an involvement of a clinical pilot in the remote and urban primary health care centers.

Several patients get “inappropriate” medications asper the UniSA research team. It leads to hospital admissions.

The digital solution can prevent annual medication-related admission of about 25,000. As per DHCRC, over 65 years old, about 7 lac Australians have kidney problems. Also, the Torres Strait Islander and Aboriginal people are the project’s target beneficiaries.

The DHCRC set up a research project worth $2.1M last month. It will enhance the clinical decision support tools throughout the metropolitan and regional hospital settings within the nation. The 3-year project targets to improve the fit between the decision support tech and the users. To achieve this, it will also use Alcidion’s Miya Precision system for pointing out priority areas where the decision support tools can add value.

The research firm, in September, released a project, together with SA Health and UniSA. It is for creating a digital analytics tool that estimates the adverse events’ risk in the hospitals. The tool will also develop a visual program for providing the administrators and clinicians with real-time data describing the risk exposure of the hospital.

The project aims to resolve safety issues of the patient like suicide prevention, falls incidents, medication, and ramping.
