Healthy citizens are the greatest asset any country can have.Winston Churchill
The aging of populations in the developed world is one of the most significant trends of the 21st century. In the mid-1930s the average life expectancy for an Australian was 63. It is now 82. The impact this has on our social infrastructure, particularly around health and aged care, is huge. Compounding the issue is a dramatic rise in obesity, mental health issues, drug and alcohol abuse and domestic violence.
We’re focused on how innovative uses of ICT services can enable business and Government agencies to address these compelling health issues. We are challenging existing assumptions and misconceptions around the delivery of ICT services that underpin the delivery of these business, mission and life critical services. It’s a big part of our vision for our customers and Australia.
Creating an integrated view of clinical information and medical records has many benefits in providing better health care. The real challenges come in the privacy and security issues around this information. We offer both managed security services across our networks and a range of planned and ad-hoc security consulting.
Huge value and performance improvements come from the provision of a well-considered wide area network (WAN) across multiple sites. This is particularly true for organisations with sites in regional, rural and remote Australia. A QoS-enabled WAN provides you with the choice and flexibility of accessing any private and/or public Cloud.
Out-of-home care is an emerging trend in the Australian market place for aged and health care services. Equipping your staff with the right ‘mobility tools’ is essential if you are to capitalise on this change in service delivery model. We give your infield staff an extension of your fixed network across a secure, scalable and integrated mobile platform.
We’ve come a long way from PSTN telephony and clunky video conferencing. Enhanced video conferencing and unified communications facilitate a huge range of opportunities in ‘changing the game’ in the delivery of standard and advanced health services. We facilitate interconnects with a growing number of ‘best of breed’ providers of these services to simplify your adoption and use of these applications.
Get out of the metro areas of Australia and there’s not much choice in service providers. It doesn’t have to be that way. We’re building carrier grade network infrastructure across regional and remote Australia for health and aged care providers who accept the challenge to provide exceptional care.
Health and aged care agencies have our lives in their hands. Quite literally. The more we rely on networked technologies, including Cloud services, the higher the requirement for redundant services with true network diversity. And don’t buy into the pitch from incumbent carriers. The only way to secure true redundancy is through diverse carriers – path, media and operator.
Medical imaging has provided health care providers with a phenomenally enhanced ability to identify, and ultimately treat, serious medical issues. With this capability comes new requirements for large file transfers, software and clinical application integration and enhanced communications. We cater for these and other network requirements.
In case you missed it, the Wi-Fi standard is being seriously improved with a number of capacity, quality and interoperability enhancements. Carrier grade Wi-Fi is here now, with the potential to dramatically change the way your staff, patients and guests use mobile, location and IoT services.
You’ve invested the money in a network to support your operations and staff. Now you can leverage off that same infrastructure to provide enhanced voice, video, entertainment and data services to your patients, guests and residents. We can deliver these for you as a managed service or enable you as a virtual service provider.
Modern health and aged care models see a higher level of interconnectivity with selected Enterprise and Government entities. We address the challenges that exist in providing secure, scalable and flexible interconnects with your service provider partners across Australia and throughout the world. It helps you partner. It helps you win.
