- Medworxx signed an agreement with TELUS Health to offer their customers the Medworxx Patient Flow Platform, enabling healthcare practitioners to better analyze and monitor patient health in an acute-care environment. TELUS has a significant footprint – it is used by about 40,000 clinical and healthcare professionals in Canada, primarily in Quebec and the Ottawa region, as well as in the U.S. and Australia. Medworxx Patient Flow is a natural integration point with Computerized Physician Order Entry (CPOE) and Medworxx will bring value to their customers through the synergistic technology.
- Medworxx also formalized a new Medworxx Patient Flow – Appropriate Length of Stay Audit (“ALSA”) program, which helps to unlock unique patient flow data and help organizations better understand patient flow issues. ALSA uses the proven Medworxx software as an audit and diagnostic solution prior to hospitals implementing the solution operationally.
- In Q2 2013, Greater East Midlands Commissioning Support Unit (GEM), a large UK Trust, licensed Medworxx Patient Flow – ALSA program for its annual reviews delivered within its region covering a 4.5 million population and 13,000 beds in acute-care or community‐based hospitals and in non‐hospital environments.

- With strong traction in Canada and robust growth in the UK, Medworxx has begun to market actively in Australia. With 82,800 hospital beds in Australia, there is a significant opportunity for hospitals to achieve significant quantifiable increases in efficiency by implementing the Medworxx Patient Flow Platform. Medworxx has also partnered with global management consulting firm Kurt Salmon to use the Medworxx Patient Flow Platform – ALSA program to conduct audits of healthcare organizations in France as part of their management consulting process.
