The Gold Coast University Hospital in Queensland, Australia was a brand new state-of-the-art facility accommodating 750 overnight beds and 241 same day beds.
From the outset it relied upon a complex Information, Communication and Technology programme to deliver a robust, secure and scalable environment for optimal connectivity, flexibility and collaborative working across the Queensland Health District.
Forfusion was approached by implementation partner Frame Group to assist in the Unified Communications pillar of the ICT provision.
Digital Infrastructure from scratch
The Hospital required a complete digital environment encompassing data centre, wired and wireless networks, security, Unified Communications, Virtual Desktop Infrastructure, contact centre, audio visual, digital signage, real-time location services and mobile duress.
An extensive programme of requirements gathering had begun ahead of Forfusion’s involvement. This spanned several technology pillars, and multiple public and private sector contractors, vendors and systems integrators.
A multitude of workshops and meetings were held, all of which had to be documented within compressed timeframes.
