An innovative movie-on-demand service is part of the $630 million New Bendigo Hospital development project. New Bendigo Hospital is the single largest regional development hospital project Victoria has ever undertaken and is a fusion of technology, progressive healthcare and new approaches to patient-centered wellness.
The movie service has been developed and deployed by Australian IPTV services provider CombiTel and is part of the technology solutions company’s focus of new digital services for the health care sector.
Launched in June, the movie-on-demand services are free for patients and the movie catalogue can be viewed on-demand on newly fitted bedside terminals. The content range is diverse and the movies are post cinema window screening but pre Netflix or FOXTEL .
The Bendigo Hospital Project began construction began in 2013 and Stage One of the Bendigo Hospital Project was completed in late January 2017.Stage Two is poised to be completed mid-2018.
Bendigo Hospital CIO Bruce Winzar said “the evolutions in technology had enabled world-class medical access and services for patients in regional areas, which had been mostly unachievable previously.
Technology is the backbone of the new facility’s approach to patient care and servicing. There is hospital wide cloud based patient database allowing for on the spot access to patient records and medical data.”
An in house communication system allows patients to communicate with nursing staff, order food and access entertainment, making the experience more comfortable and informed for the patient.
“Additionally, the emergence of mobile health applications, wearables, internet of things is something that Bendigo can see having a great impact for patients in the future. It would mean that patients might return home earlier, and use wearables or sensors to track their health, for example, heart rate or blood pressure with that information automatically uploaded and made available to clinical teams,” Winzar said.
