Hospitals and Area Health

Connecting Hospitals and Area Health departments to a Care Communication Network(s) and to Community and Residential Care Services, through Qx21 Health''s Universal Communication Platform using our business process based solutions and innovative tools will improve Patient, Client and Resident care and also save millions of dollars year on year.

Qx21 Health''s Universal Communication Platform is interoperable with and works synergistically with any other system; including Public and Private Hospital, and Area Health internal and external facing systems eg Cerner, Millennium and others as well as GP''s medical software and other Community and Residential Care systems.

Key Benefits

The benefits of using the system are numerous at every level from individual users, to departments, to Hospitals of all sizes and types, to Area Health and to State Health, anywhere.

Key benefits include:

» A shift in care from Hospital Healthcare to Community Healthcare

  • Increasing the capacity of Health services
  • Enabling more Patients to be cared for, first, in the Community
  • Directing appropriate levels of care to ensure high need facilities and resources are not overwhelmed by low need Patients
