Hirondelle Private Hospital
Established in 1969, Hirondelle Private Hospital in Sydney, Australia, specializes in post-operative rehabilitation to maximize patient independence and recovery. The hospital’s services include physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech pathology, and social welfare.
Hirondelle Private Hospital required an application that could handle a wide variety of critical functions, from managing the movement of patients in and out of the hospital to administering bills and forecasting potential growth in different parts of the business. With its focus on patient well-being, the Hospital needed a solution that would allow it to perform these tasks quickly and cost-effectively. The solution would have to remain reliable and scalable as the hospital’s operating systems, hardware, and other technology evolved over time.
The solution would also need to be flexible enough to support ad hoc reporting. In particular, hospitals negotiate with insurance companies each year about how much they earn from health funds. To successfully prepare for these negotiations, a hospital might need to categorize patients by doctor, ward, and number of days they stayed in the hospital, among other factors.
