Austco has received a AUD $1.3m contract to update the industry-leading Tacera Nurse Call platform installed at the 700-bed Ng Teng Fong General Hospital (NTFGH) and the 400-bed Jurong Community Hospital (JCH).
The strategic partnership between JurongHealth Campus and Austco will ensure that the state-of-the-art hospital executes on the vision of improving healthcare for the community through better and cost-effective care. Austco was chosen on the basis that Tacera’s software is the only nurse call solution on the market that delivers VoIP Internet Protocol to the patients’ bedside and provides a foundation for future products and services.
NTFGH and JCH were the first hospitals in Singapore to be designed and built together from the ground up as an integrated healthcare development. They deliver patient-centered services in a seamless and integrated manner for better patient care, greater efficiency and convenience.
All beds will feature the Tacera solution and include integrations with JurongHealth’s Code Blue Platform, which will deliver the fastest Code Blue rapid response of any hospital in Singapore.
As a further example of JurongHealth’s innovative approach to Healthcare, NTFGH and JCH also intend to adopt artificial intelligence technology in the future with the Tacera solution, which will be able to use data to diagnose the patient and improve survival rates.
“We are aligned with JurongHealth’s mission of advancing healthcare by synergizing technology,” Clayton Astles, CEO of Austco Healthcare, said. “At Austco, our focus is on providing innovative solutions, like our exceptional Tacera nurse call system, that deliver quality care and optimize the patient experience.”
