Kestral Welcomes Healthscope and Imaging Diagnostics Australia
Healthscope is one of Australia's leading providers of private health care with worldwide hospitals, pathology laboratories and medical centres in Australia, New Zealand and South East Asia.
The newly formed Imaging Diagnostics Australia, is Healthscope’s imaging practice, operating at Allamanda Private Hospital, Prince of Wales Private Hospital, Nepean Private Hospital and Lady Davidson Private Hospital.
When Kestral began the installation of Karisma at Allamanda Private Hospital, painters, construction workers and electricians were still putting the finishing touches on the brand new imaging department. So new was the facility, in fact, that the CT machine was still in bubble-wrap.
Given the brief to concentrate on x-ray and ultrasound only, with CT to follow within a few weeks, Kestral installation staff were faced with the first patient CT request by 11:00 of the same morning. Suddenly, CT exams had to be defined in Karisma on the fly.
Performing admirably under pressure, Kestral implementation staff were able to configure the system and offer training to the staff at the facility even as they went about their day-to-day business and patients were seen and processed.
Kestral is pleased to have played an important part in the opening of this outstanding new facility. Since then, Karisma has been implemented at Prince of Wales Private Hospital, Nepean Private Hospital and Lady Davidson Private Hospital.
