  • Will be used to enhance communication between patients and caregivers
  • Improved hospital workflow and resource planning expected
  • Measure and analyse facility data using Tacera’s robust reporting tools

Tuesday, 30 August 2016 – Melbourne – Azure Healthcare Limited (ASX:AZV) is pleased to announce that its North American subsidiary has received a AUD $1.1 million (at current exchange rates) purchase order for the supply and commission of Austco’s state-of-the-art Tacera IP Nurse Call and workflow system. System commissioning and completion is expected in the 2017 financial year.

While conventional communication systems react to events, the Tacera solution sets new standards by providing monitoring and data management tools to analyze, anticipate and alert healthcare staff to patients’ needs. This ability to disseminate and manage patient call information ensures that patient safety, quality of care and nursing satisfaction remain top priorities.

This hospital project will include the deployment of the popular Tacera Pulse software suite. Since its launch earlier this year, Tacera Pulse has gained significant traction in the growing healthcare market. Utilizing Pulse’s powerful reporting tools, senior healthcare management can monitor call activity, staff response times and other KPIs critical to improving patient care. Key performance indicators provide healthcare organizations with actionable data needed to increase patient satisfaction, improve staff performance and optimize workflow.
