AUS to Build “Next-generation” Digital Hospital

Country: Australia
Created: Oct 11, 2011

The new Royal Adelaide Hospital will become the benchmark for Australia’s new medical institutions as HP builds and maintains its information, communication and technology systems.

Set to be the next-generation digital hospital, the Royal Adelaide Hospital will enable clinical staff to deliver better patient care and is expected to cost the state government less to run in terms of nonclinical support services.

HP will integrate the hospital’s in-building systems with the South Australia Government’s enterprise-level health patient admission and medical records applications to create a pervasive, real-time information environment. The solution automates clinical and facilities management workflows to improve care and efficiency and deliver better outcomes for patients.

The new Royal Adelaide Hospital is the first facility to use version 2.0 of the HP Digital Hospital Solution as its technology foundation. The cohesive set of technologies and services will replace its single-function systems with a comprehensive solution that aligns technology with operational and patient priorities.

The integrated solution will link the South Australia Government’s enterprise systems with critical hospital systems including: — Building engineering systems, such as building automation and security systems, providing critical alerts to clinical staff; — Automatically Guided Vehicle (AGV) System, providing more efficient and timely notifications to clinical and facilities management staff; — Communications Systems, such as the IP PABX, which will support devices including smartphones and tablets, improving staff responsiveness and efficiency; and — Real-Time Location Systems (RTLS), used for patient and equipment tracking, providing improved medical equipment utilization, while ensuring patients are locatable by staff at any time for booked procedures or to ensure their safety.

Medical systems including the nurse call system, picture archiving and communication system, and sophisticated bedside terminals also will be integrated. Performance and fault monitoring will be provided from a best shore location.
