Computing Internship - Orion Health (Project 2)

This position is offered through the ANU Computing Internship


Orion Health is a global, award-winning provider of health information technology, advancing population health and precision medicine solutions for the delivery of care across the entire health ecosystem. Founded in 1993, Orion Health’s focus for 27 years has been on delivering software, services and support for healthcare organisations that empower clinicians and caregivers with the right information to deliver the best possible care.

There are 2 internship projects on offer with Orion Health

Project 1: Medication timeline observations

Orion Health has a software application that aggregates medication activity (prescription orders, pharmacy dispenses, patient administrations) and presents these as a timeline. Clinicians (doctors, pharmacists, nurses) use the timeline to see what medications the patient is taking, and how these have changed over time.

A missing element on the timeline is is the ability to see proof of how the patient's condition responds to these medications. There are some laboratory tests and observations (HBA1C, INR, GFR, Peak flow rate, etc) that are indicators of health and response to medication treatment.

This project will be to integrate with published patient observations and plot these on the timeline. As a result, clinicians will be able to visually identify the patient's response to medication therapy changes over time, and help them decide how best to optimise therapy.
