Visionstream will deploy a AUD$71 million ICT solution for the Royal Adelaide Hospital that is aimed to integrate government development on high end data services with actual health care provision.

The project will provide the hospital with 150 Terabits per second of switching capacity and new technology platforms including RFID and a wireless real time location system for patient and equipment tracking.

The project has been designed in conjunction with the South Australian Government’s new model of medicinal care which focusses on using technology to enable safe care solutions, reducing time spent on admin and increasing clinician-patient time.

An integrated wireless networks will be deployed throughout the facility which will combine tagging and tracking functionality to manage both patient intake and care, as well as track availability of health care equipment throughout the hospital.

The new networks will also support features such as meal ordering by patients, lighting control, telephony, medical imaging and audio-visual content distribution.

Visionstream is also supplying the IP PABX, delivering a unified communications system including wired and wireless handsets, 550 network devices, 25,000 physical network connections, 2000 wireless access points, 4200 fixed phones, 550 wireless phones and thousands of tracked RFID tags.

“This is the first time that this level of integrated communications technology and capability will be showcased as the new Royal Adelaide Hospital will be a world class facility and the most technologically advanced health facility in Australia. Visionstream are proud to be part of such a significant project,” said Visionstream GM Allan Bradford. ®
