SRA Delivers on Oracle Application Express ’Promise’

SRA has delivered a production ready application based on Oracle’s Application Express technology for the Australian Federal Government. The application provides for the capture of and reporting on consolidated health indicator-based data from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander primary health care service providers Australia-wide whilst maintaining a high degree of data integrity and security. The web-based application implements a structured data entry and reporting process supporting a twice yearly reporting regime in addition to ad-hoc graphical trend reporting capability.

The application is contributing to improving data quality and delivery of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health outcomes. Use of Oracle’s Application Express has enabled SRA to harness its existing Oracle knowledge so that developers are productive with very little training. Because applications developed in Application Express are stored in the database, they are very portable with a very simple export/import process used to migrate applications. The implementation delivers on the Oracle Application Express ’promise’ of being able to develop and deploy professional web based applications that are both fast and secure.

SRA continues to work with its partners in this project to support and extend the functionality delivered by the application.
