HUMANETIX NEWS ARCHIVE
Why is our technology declared to be of national significance, and why has there been such an interest world-wide? What’s the big deal? We will attempt to answer those questions here in plain language.
Our technology assets and tools are custom-built and truly ‘next gen’
We have developed our own technology stack: in other words, we have made all the new technology that we need to build, evolve and maintain our products.
This technology stack has been independently assessed as world-leading. It includes a code generator, which is unique in the world.
We have verified that it’s the next generation of technology in this area, we are not just using the term ‘next gen’.
What the technology can do is very exciting
Our technology stack allows us to develop workflows faster and with more safety than anyone else. We allow configuration, not customization.
For example, with ACE we obliterate the bureaucracy of patient record keeping, and make records, data and stats work alongside the patent, the staff and toward the desired health outcome.
The results of what our technology can do pose huge benefits to efficiency, safety and the well-being of society at large. They are disruptive levels of improvement.
It’s all verified
Our technology is verified, scientifically in a 3-phase clinical trial, independent studies and assessments from those who know how to verify its value. It works more safely and reliably than anything else.
We work in a unique developer environment of safety and efficiency.
No other technology company in the sectors we have entered develops their products in cohesion with industry, professional and other strict safety or scientific standards. It’s a very difficult, costly thing to do.
We have done so from the start, and we have asked along the way, what ‘impossible’ problems can we solve in these environments?
What we really make are smart systems
Systems that serve important functions. After designing one workflow system, we have been approached to apply them to many other complex scenarios.
All of these scenarios have the same thing in common: they involve people serving people and society, and they are currently burdened by a load of information and a lack of system design. The results of a failing system in these sectors have been documented by society, scientifically, often for decades.
Our products make complicated workflows, in places where people use a lot of technology, to actually work. They allow the relevant systems to any given user at any given time to become more visible.
They also present new ways to collect accurate, reliable data in real time and to design a system that encompasses everything taking place in a workflow or environment.
Complex systems need proper design – and we have made sure that we can do that. Technology is what we made our systems out of, and we ensure the technology is safe, secure and world leading.
We allow configuration, not customization: this is significant in technology terms. It means that you can configure one of our own products to suit your situation, workforce, workflow and other technology.
You don’t need to hope we’ll design it in just the right way for you, or customize it, hoping it doesn’t break or cause a glitch in the technology.
The system behind the technology is so robust that it can flex and bend. It can evolve as your workflow, work environment and other technologies evolve. It can be configured, improved on and updated without the costly ‘patching over’ that the world’s flawed and broken systems require.
To date, many complex systems replicate paper filing cabinets, paper-based record keeping by creating a digital clipboard, digital filing cabinet, and digital library.
Our systems don’t just file information for you, they assist as the librarian and the many other assistants that we imagine technology to be capable of.
Our products have been independently and rigorously trialed, tested and customized over several years’ international development and consultation.
These are the core reasons why Humanetix technology has been declared at a Ministerial level to be of national significance, and why we are the first Australian company ever to be nominated fro World Patient Safety Innovation Awards.
Following a visit and demonstration of a Humanetix developed system [SmartWard] to the Patient Safety Movement Foundation, we were named as one of 6 finalists in the 3rd Annual Patient Safety Innovation Awards. Chief Systems Architect and co-founder, Matt Darling, travelled to the UK as the Movement’s sponsored speaker at the 6th Annual World Patient Safety, Science & Technology Summit hosted in London in February 2018.
The Chief Minister of the ACT, the Hon Andrew Barr MLA, has expressed strong support for a trial of a Humanetix developed app in the ACT. The Chief Minister opened the Humanetix new office in the Technology Park in Bruce and said that he wanted to see the locally-developed technology deployed first in the ACT.
About 70 people attended the launch. Attendees included staff, shareholders and stakeholders from the ACT and Federal Government.
The Chief Minister was provided with a demonstration of the software and was briefed on the clinical evidence of the apps potential to improve patient outcomes, while containing runaway hospital costs. In his remarks at the conference, the Chief Minister said that a key challenge for the ACT, and elsewhere, is finding a path to affordable, high quality healthcare. He commented that Humanetix is the right technology, at the right time – and it is from the ACT. His remarks were met with a rousing cheer from the gathered supporters.
The Chief Minister is following through on his statements at the launch, arranging a high-level meeting to explore options for the deployment of Humanetix in the ACT. This meeting is expected to take place in September.
In welcoming the Chief Minister at the office opening, Humanetix’s Chief Executive thanked the Chief Minister for the ACT Government’s support for Humanetix, which had begun with an Innovation Grant in 2010 and helped kick off the business. “Chief Minister Barr now and in his role as Health Minister has recognized the importance to ACT residents and to all Australians of reducing costs in the health sector, improving patient outcomes and propelling a local technology onto national and international markets”.
Humanetix has also been undertaking limited contract work with ACT Health The rationale was to establish a commercial relationship with ACT Health and prove the quality of our work and knowledge of the health sector.
One of the lead researchers in the Humanetix clinical trials, Associate Professor Bernice Redley of the Centre for Nursing Research at Deakin University has been awarded the 2015 Moya Conrick Award for her presentation on the collaborative research undertaken with Humanetix. The Moya Conrick Prize is presented for the best submitted paper and presentation at the Nursing Informatics Australia Forum that is held as part of the Health Information Conference – a special interest group within HISA).
