Perth-based Austco Communications has received a $US1.8 million purchase order from Canada’s Honeywell to provide nurse call systems for Ontario’s new Oakville Hospital.

Austco, which is a subsidiary of ASX-listed Azure Healthcare, will supply and install its Tacera nurse call system under the contract, which was announced today.

The Tacera system allows nurse call alerts to be displayed on pagers and mobile telephones, without the need for third-party infrastructure.

Clinical alarm systems, such as patient monitoring, ventilators and IV pumps can also be integrated into the Tacera system.

The $2 billion Oakville hospital is expected to be completed by the summer of 2015.

““Oakville Hospital will have some of the most sophisticated integrations of any healthcare facility in North America, including Real-Time Patient Telemetry, ADT, RTLS, Patient Flow, Wayfinding (Digital Signage) and Cisco Wireless Phones,” Austco Canada vice president Clayton Astles said.

“These integrations will ensure that critical information is reaching the right people as quickly as possible, which will allow Oakville Hospital to provide exceptional patient care and safety.”

At close of trade today, Azure Healthcare shares were up 6.3 per cent, trading at 5 cents.
