Hastings Health Centre

Hastings Health Centre provides primary health care services to the local community. Read about how Glenn Cook Technologies helps enable the Centre to provide these quality services with comprehensive ICT solutions.

Over 100,000 people walk through Hastings Health Centre’s door each year to access doctors, nurses, specialist health providers, pharmacy, radiology and urgent care services. GCT supports all Hastings Health Centre’s IT services; including installing, servicing, maintaining and protecting various software packages, IT hardware, and equipment the Centre relies on to provide the highest standard of medical care to its patients.

GCT has developed a great understanding of the medical sector, including MedTech and ManageMyHealth software. Their team are able to resolve problems quickly and without worry.

Medical ICT expertise

With specialist certified engineers and experience supporting medical centres, the GCT team ensures Hastings Health Centre’s specialist health software is always available and accessible. GCT supports the Centre’s MedTech patient management system; ManageMyHealth Patient Portal; Dragon Dictation voice-to-text software for GPs to record notes; and DrInfo database and notes management. GCT’s support around specific medical software and platforms ensures greater efficiency, productivity, and security that benefits the Centre’s employees, doctors, nurses and patients.

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. 

Future proof

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.

They’re just good people. In today’s modern technology-driven age, you’d be hard-pressed to run a health centre without functioning technology, and GCT certainly help keep things running.
