Australian e-health solutions provider Global Health (ASX:GLH) has revealed it has secured a contract to deploy two of its suites at 40 youth mental health centres.
National youth mental health foundation headspace will deploy Global Health's MasterCare Clinician platform and ReferralNet Secure Messaging suite across its centres nationwide.
The foundation has 30 centres across Australia, with another 10 due to be opened in the second half of 2011.
Under the terms of the deal, Global Health will update the MHAGIC mental health case management system it had previously provided for headspace with the shared electronic medical records provided through MasterCare, while implementing some specific customisations.
MasterCare will also provide billing, scheduling and eClaim functionality, Global Health said.
headspace director of innovation Deepika Ratnaike said the deal will allow the company to standardise its clinical recording practices with its healthcare partners.
“Most headspace centres are co-located with organisations that typically provide GP and other allied health services,” Ratnaike said.
“The upgrade will allow our centres to be standardised on one platform for all their clinical and practice management needs without compromising headspace specific workflow and associated reporting.”
Financial terms were not disclosed. GLH shares stayed flat during Monday's trading at $0.032.
