The United States Department of Defense (DoD) has awarded a contract to U.K.-based Datix for the deployment of its software in a Patient Safety Reporting project for the Military Health System, one of the largest healthcare systems in the United States.
According to the company, Datix met its core requirements for a web-based solution and a complete patient safety taxonomy and had experience in implementing large-scale patient safety reporting solutions.
A limited deployment of Datix software will take place at nine Military Treatment Facilities in late 2009, followed by a decision to proceed to full deployment in 2010. Systems integration and training will be carried out by Northrop Grumman Corporation under a separate contract.
