Data#3, a leading Australian technology provider, is pleased to announce the completion of a major, multi-million-dollar, digital infrastructure project for the new Sunshine Coast University Hospital (SCUH). In March 2017, patient services commenced at SCUH in a phased approach. SCUH provides a range of new and expanded health services.
SCUH is Queensland’s first public hospital delivered via a Public Private Partnership (PPP). Exemplar Health, a consortium comprising Lendlease, Siemens, First State Super, Capella Capital and Spotless Facilities Services, designed, constructed, partially financed, commissioned and will maintain the hospital buildings (including car parks) and grounds for 25 years.
Data#3 was engaged to equip the hospital with more than 4,200 digital technology devices in partnership with HP Australia (HP).
The project was part of an overall strategy to help SCUH become a more digital and connected hospital. Specialist healthcare devices provide enhanced mobility and flexibility, and give hospital staff fast, reliable and seamless access to critical information such as patient details, test results and reports.
A significant contributor to the successful project was Data#3’s logistics management, integration, deployment and testing. Working to critical deadlines, Data#3 was required to implement precise logistical planning to keep the project on track.
Data#3 also provided project management capabilities and governance over other specialist digital technology providers, professional services, imaging and asset tagging, change management and training for all hospital staff, and ongoing field services.
Chris Hewlett, Business Manager – Commercial Channel, HP Australia, said, “To our core, HP is a company formed through effective partnering. It’s through this experience that we connect with Data#3 to offer our combined experience and solutions to the progressive Sunshine Coast University Hospital. Together, we have extensive knowhow of the healthcare system in Australia and its technology requirements, and the complexities of how a public entity can coexist with a private health system. HP’s technology is key to driving digitisation in Australia and enabling customers to be highly mobile while offering our leading security solutions to protect sensitive client data.”
Data#3 Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director, Laurence Baynham, adds, “We’re delighted to partner with HP and Queensland Health on this significant digital infrastructure project for the Sunshine Coast community. The success of the project demonstrates Data#3’s expertise in the design and deployment of world-leading technologies, and reinforces our credentials in the healthcare sector.”
