Australian software vendor PowerHealth Solutions has signed an exclusive distribution agreement with UK software vendor Datix to distribute the UK company’s patient safety software in Australia and New Zealand, to meet the growing demand for patient safety in this region.
Healthcare is a high-risk industry with 1 in 10 hospital patients in developed countries being unintentionally harmed while receiving care. The Datix patient safety system enables hospitals to understand their organisational risk by integrating and analysing information from key information systems. Armed with this information, hospitals can identify and take action on specific priorities such as infection control, safe surgery, and healthcare waste management.
