IT services company, UXC, has snared a $3 million project with the Australian Government Department of Health and Ageing (DoHA) Pharmaceutical Benefits Division.
UXC group marketing director, Stuart Dickinson, said the company was excited about the Interactive Communications Facility (ICF) project as it fell under a key target market.
"The Federal Government's been a key target of ours for the past 6-12 months," he said. "We've spent a lot of time on that space and this win is confirmation that our strategy is working."
Dickinson said the application development arm of UXC, Dytech Solutions, would put together the ICF. It would be used to support the processes required for drugs to be listed on the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (PBS).
Pharmaceutical companies will be able to lodge submissions and track their progress through the ICF. It is due for completion in mid 2008.
"The more runs we can get on the board with the Federal Government, and the more experience we can show, the more government wins will come our way," Dickinson said. "We're gaining some real momentum here."
