OutSystems’ powerful low-code development platform has been chosen as a key part of the JP2060 Phase 4 contract awarded to Leidos Australia by the Australian Defense Force.
The project will result in designing, constructing, and implementing the integral Health Knowledge Management (HKM) system.
Work on the AUD$299 million project has already begun, with final operational capabilities expected to be fully functional by 2025.
OutSystems’ high-performance, low-code platform is an important part of the technology stack designed and tested for the project.
OutSystems provides the capabilities of a full-stack application development platform, enabling the project to build a Case Management System and Compensation Portal, which are an important part of the overall integrated HKM system.
The Case Management system enables multidisciplinary care teams such as rehabilitation and occupational therapists to securely record case notes, manage and view consultations, and share documents throughout the patient care cycle. Meanwhile, the Compensation Portal will enable interagency collaboration for outside service providers such as the Department of Veterans Affairs and the Commonwealth Superannuation Corporation, speeding up the member’s eligibility for claims and access to rights.
The fully integrated HKM system will replace ADF’s old electronic health record product. The final design will provide a modern, patient-centric health solution for ADF staff.
Leveraging OutSystems and a broad selection of leading technology products and service providers, the new system will capture, store, aggregate, and analyze health data and information for the ADF population. This is achieved by uniting multidisciplinary primary and occupational health care with emergency and hospital care to enable better clinical decision-making.
The system tracks and manages the health journeys of the ADF personnel from the point of injury through the entire evacuation chain to the rehabilitation and recovery phase. All relevant clinical information can be recorded and included in a member’s health record to facilitate appropriate, ongoing care.
The contract value is AUD$299 million, and JP2060 Phase 4 will create approximately 187 full-time equivalent jobs in Canberra, Brisbane, Melbourne, and Sydney.
“This is an important project for OutSystems Australia and the entire project team, and we are excited and humbled to be a part of it,” said Paul Arthur, Regional VP for A/NZ at OutSystems.
“We provide the complete full-stack application development platform and have an experienced, agile, and highly capable team to back up large programs like this one,” he says.
“It’s also gratifying to work on an important project where we provide better care for sick and injured defense personnel, and we’re grateful to have this opportunity.”
The Leidos Australia-led consortium will primarily comprise Australian companies with experience in health and clinical management software.
Over 95% of the work is provided by local Australian companies.
Adrian McCormack, senior account executive at OutSystems with primary responsibility for OutSystems implementation, added, “The inclusion in this project is a reflection of our ability to deliver secure, modern digital outcomes for the defense at an incredible pace.
“It further demonstrates our continued commitment to defense and national security in Australia.”
