Creating the Foundations for a Leading Digital Hospital
Franklin Hospital CEO, Dr Creasan Reddy, had a strong vision for Pukekohe’s first private hospital. Having worked in the Pukekohe area for many years, he could see a strong and growing need to bring specialist services closer to the community.
Identifying technology as the tool to provide a world-class service, Reddy knew he would need a best-in-class solution to lay the digital foundations for his vision.
Building a solution from scratch
Myen Naidu, Operations Manager, was of the same mindset. In selecting a provider for the job he was very clear on what was needed. While the hospital’s needs were complex, the solution must be simple to use, secure and reliable.
Starting from scratch, the hospital was built with technology in mind from the ground up. Spark Health was engaged early in the planning process and had input into the architectural designs of the hospital. In addition to managing the connectivity and software requirements for the hospital, Spark Health also coordinated hardware procurement including switches, wireless devices, desktops and devices.
Once built, the hospital required fully managed systems to support world-leading digital theatres, data driven decision making by the management team and the detailed billing requirements of a private hospital.
Through working with Spark Health, a range of solutions have been implemented to meet the current and future needs of the hospital, which opened officially in August 2021.
