Modern and mobile operating system
GCT set the Centre up with a robust, modern ICT platform that allows employees to be fully connected, even when they’re on the go. Lower cost, easy-to-manage devices connect to a high-powered server platform to provide a virtualised desktop, allowing staff to access their personalised environment from any terminal. Because all devices on the system are standardised, maintenance, software and hardware costs are reduced; and employees experience fewer faults and failures — saving time and frustration. This system also provides secure, remote access for the Centre’s clinic in Havelock North, mobile district nursing unit and DHB staff.
Already one of the largest medical centres in Hawke’s Bay, Hastings Health Centre is set to grow further with a brand new purpose-built clinic opening in 2019. For construction of the new centre, GCT advised on and designed the structured cabling, wireless network, network switches, and server room provisions. GCT’s certified structured cabling engineers will install the structured cabling, wireless and patch panels for the new centre — helping ensure the new Centre is technologically robust well into the future. GCT will also manage a project to migrate the Centre’s ICT platform to the new building, while minimising the impact on business operations.
