Release 6.0

Fixus Release 6.0 will be deployed to the production instance on the 23rd of October 2014.

Key changes within this release are detailed below:

Teams Security

The concept of Team Security has being introduced into the Fixus product to allow lead agencies to better manage access to client records when multiple agencies are collaborating within the one system.

The feature allows the lead agency to group staff members together that share access to a common set of clients. Only staff members within the group can view and manage client records that they have been assigned to.

During the upgrade process a team will be created for each existing agency and staff members will automatically be migrated into the team belonging to their agency.

A role attribute has been created to allow lead agencies to override team security, allowing internal staff to access all client records.

All related reports have been updated in line with the new security regime.


The notes interface has been redesigned to enhance the overall experience for users managing notes within the system. As well as a redesign of the information displayed we have added text formatting, full screen mode, searchable tags, draft and auto-save features.

Design, Navigation, Banner & Alerts

Based on feedback collected over the past 12 months we have re-designed the main client/case banner to make the information clearer and also to reduce the amount of space consumed.

In addition to this, the workflow indicators that were previously displayed within the demographics tab have been moved out onto the main screen, ensuring they are always visible.

PIR System Reform

System reform is a key pillar of the Partners in Recovery program.  The inclusion of system reform functionality into the program will assist agencies to demonstrate to the Department of Health that they are working to change the way policy drives consistent improvement within the health services sector.

This release of Fixus has introduced a new set of features that support collaboration and assist lead agencies address key reform issues. The initiative was driven by Metro North Brisbane Medicare Local, Inner East Melbourne Medicare Local, Aftercare WMO and Gold Coast Medicare Local.

The feature set includes: 

  • Enquiry Register
  • Issues Register
  • Reform Plan
  • Networks & Collaborations
  • Risk Assessment

If you are interested in the system reform feature set, please contact us.


We are always looking for ways to improve performance and during our scheduled performance review we identified optimisations, which have been made to all main search screens within the product.
