Description

Introduction 

Austin Health is one of Victoria’s largest health care providers. Comprising the Austin Hospital, Heidelberg Repatriation Hospital and Royal Talbot Rehabilitation Centre, Austin Health is a major teaching and research centre with numerous university and research institute affiliations.  

Austin Health employs in excess of 9,500 staff across its three sites; including over 1,000 Doctors and 4,000 nurses, and delivers a full range of leading-edge clinical services, including several state-wide services (liver transplant, spinal cord injury service, respiratory support service, child inpatient mental health service). In total, Austin Health provides over 900 beds, including mental health, aged care and rehabilitation beds.  

The opportunity 

In order to support the provision of reliable and safe care, Austin Health seeks to develop, and implement systems that prevent, manage and control infections and antimicrobial resistance; reducing harm for patients, consumers and members of the workforce; and achieve good health outcomes for patients. In alignment with National Safety and Quality Health Service (NSQHS) Standard 3 - Preventing and Controlling Healthcare-Associated Infection, Austin Health are required to have a traceability process for semi-critical and critical reusable medical devices (RMDs) that is capable of identifying the patient, the procedure and the RMDs that were used for the procedure. Although AH currently engages a supplier to perform electronic tracking services on the Austin Hospital site for critical neurological RMDs only, tracking of all other critical and semi critical RMDs is currently only able to be manually performed and not to the instrument level.    

Austin Health is seeking a suitably qualified and experienced vendor that wish to partner with Austin Health to provide a breadth of electronic RMD traceability services for expansion across all three sites of the organisation.
