WA tendering for integrated health HR system

The Western Australian Government has committed $8.5 million towards a new project to identify an integrated human resources, payroll and rostering system for the state’s health system.

Phase one of the project is underway with the release of a request for tenders to identify a shortlist of suppliers capable of delivering a single HR management information system that suits the needs of the WA health system’s workforce.

The selection process is expected to be complete by the end of the year. Shortlisted vendors will be invited to take part in proof-of-concept testing, to determine if their proposed products and services meet the checklist of requirements.

These requirements will include the capability to integrate information including payroll, HR, learning management and rostering.

Other key requirements will be the ability to provide health service providers with access to system-wide data that can help improve reporting, governance and planning capability; and the ability for WA health system employees to conveniently access their information about shifts, leave and pay securely on their own devices.

“A modern and contemporary HR system will enable better workforce planning in response to the changing health needs of the WA community,” WA Health Minister Roger Cook said.

“This process will enable us to identify a prospective solution that will help inform our ability to deliver the best healthcare services, at the right time, by the right people.”
