Medworxx Solutions Inc. ("Medworxx") (TSX VENTURE: MWX) today announced a partnership with Leidos Health (formerly part of SAIC and includes the businesses of former maxIT Healthcare and Vitalize Consulting Solutions) which formalizes their agreement to leverage each organization's global expertise in patient flow optimization. Leidos Health employs over 2,000 healthcare consultants globally and specializes in a variety of healthcare solutions.
Medworxx and Leidos Health began working together in 2012 on a province-wide implementation of the Medworxx Patient Flow Platform for Alberta Health Services (AHS). With 8000 licensed beds, AHS was the first provincial, fully integrated health system in Canada. The success of the AHS implementation, which is contributing to significant benefits and cost savings for AHS, prompted Medworxx and Leidos to continue to pursue opportunities to assist healthcare providers in the area of patient flow performance and analytics. The two organizations collaborated to research and present; "A provincial approach to how patient flow is reducing conservable days and saving costs in the province of Alberta". The complete case study is available at: www.medworxx.com/Leidos-AHS.
"Our experience with Medworxx has been very positive - our collective strategy is to leverage Medworxx patient flow analytics and unique data review methodology and combine this with Leidos Health's performance improvement capability. We have introduced a program where our Clinical Performance Team will use Medworxx software and tools as a key component of our patient flow review methodology," said Steve Comber, President of Leidos Health.
"We are excited to be working with Leidos," said Dan Matlow, President and CEO, Medworxx. "Leidos displayed insightful clinical expertise during the AHS implementation. We are confident the depth and scope of their Clinical Performance Team has the proven ability to support our patient flow roll outs internationally. We look forward to working with Leidos consultants around the world. "
