Cloudera and ADF partner for an online health management system


The Australian Defense Force (ADF) selected Cloudera as their strategic data partner to help transform their online health management system.

Through this partnership, Cloudera will have a broader footprint within the Australian Department of Defence, and the company says this is a testament to its strategic relationship with Defense and Leidos.

The Australian Department of Defense has selected Leidos Australia to lead a consortium under its recently awarded contract for the JP2060 Ph4 project.

The consortium includes Cloudera and is designed to deliver ADF’s healthcare knowledge management system.

“Leidos Australia looks forward to working with Defense and our team of exceptional healthcare partners to deliver this critical capability to ADF,” said Leidos Australia Managing Director Paul Chase.

“Our team’s healthcare expertise, along with Leidos’ extensive defense experience, will provide a modern, sovereign solution that will meet the evolving healthcare needs of the ADF.”

The project is valued at approximately A$299 million and involves replacing ADF’s legacy electronic health record product with a modern, patient-centric healthcare offering.

The new system will document, store, collect and analyze health data and information from the ADF population, linking multidisciplinary primary and professional care with emergency hospital care to enable better clinical decision-making.

Cloudera will provide native data engineering capabilities in the private cloud using its CDP Data Engineering offering, which will be critical for deployment.

CDP Data Engineering will ingest data from multiple sources, including legacy systems and new data streams.

In addition, it will create secure data products that will streamline and operationalize the data contained in the health knowledge management system, as well as provide fast and reliable data that will be of greater value to data scientists from when they receive them, regardless of the workload. , to promote better decision-making.

“Cloudera is extremely honored to have been selected to be part of this important healthcare project, led by Leidos, in Australia,” said Colin Pont, Senior Director, Cloudera A/NZ Alliance.

“We understand the challenges governments face in extracting value from citizen health data to improve both the clinician and patient journey, from primary care to emergency care, from rehabilitation to recovery. , are extremely complex.

“For defense personnel, this journey from the field to evacuation to hospital and recovery is even more so.

“Having a smart, data-driven solution that empowers online health record keeping in such complex settings will be critical to identifying and providing appropriate care to those who serve.

“We are delighted to partner with Leidos and other consortium members to support this transformational project.”

This partnership comes after Talend recently bolstered its support for Cloudera with the addition of new certification for Cloudera Data Platform (CDP) on the public cloud, as well as CDP data services including Data Hub and Data Engineering.

As a Cloudera Connect certified technology, Talend has been tested, validated and certified to work with CDP.

According to the company, Talend gives Cloudera customers greater agility to manage healthy data more efficiently on-premises and in the cloud, enabling analytics in a modern cloud environment optimized to derive greater value from their data.
