Lifehouse has now finalised negotiations with Dimension Data for a multi-year contract to supply a medical grade network and telephony infrastructure. Advanced technology is critical to achieving measurable improvements in patient safety, quality of care and operational efficiencies, Lifehouse said in a statement. To capitalise fully on investment in new models of care and an electronic medical record, Lifehouse has engaged Dimension Data to provide a CISCO medical grade network, it said.

The Cisco medical-grade network provides the industry-specific framework required to meet Lifehouse's needs for interoperability, security, availability, productivity and flexibility. "Our patients are the focal point of our care philosophy and the fully-integrated ICT system will be one of the cornerstones supporting the Lifehouse vision. As a centre for excellence, it is essential for us to select solutions that deliver a standards-driven platform that aligns with Australia's contemporary E-Health Strategy," Lifehouse CEO, Tim Dugan, said in a statement.

"Dimension Data has been engaged after a competitive tender evaluation process. In Dimension Data we believe we have a partner that understands and is aligned to the Lifehouse vision of designing and implementing a digital integrated cancer centre," Lifehouse chief information officer, Anne-Marie Hadley, said.
