MTPConnect, HSSA to collaborate on database

MTPConnect has announced it is funding a new project with DMTC Ltd to provide a picture of the capability and capacity of Australia’s health biosecurity ecosystem, including end-to-end supply chains and workforce.

Regarding the project, DMTC’s Head of HSSA, Leigh Farrell, said “Previous surveys on Australia’s health security sector capability and supply chains have been incredibly useful in identifying capability and gaps, however, they have only provided point-in-time snapshots of the health security sector maturity,”

“By using resources and expertise of both organisations and our delivery partners, we’ll now be able to move beyond surveys. We will be able to develop a dynamic and truly digital database that is actively curated. It will provide a more complete view of the ecosystem and the supply chain.”

“It will also provide better line of sight for government agencies and stakeholders.”

“The enhanced NHSRD will enable future collaborations between government, industry and the research sector.”

This jointly-funded project will examine Australia’s research, development and manufacturing capability, supply chain resilience and distribution of products and solutions essential to health security outcomes. It will also lead an evolution in the National Health Security Resilience Assessment, managed by HSSA, to create an AI-enabled health security database.
