Solution Overview

Untitled Design (15)

Built on a browser-based mobile application platform, Medtasker solutions are purpose-designed to enable hospital staff to create, send and respond to patient care related tasks. Each task is safely and efficiently managed by the Medtasker platform from start through to completion, throughout the entire patient hospital journey.

With advanced interoperability and integrations with key hospital and third party systems, including Telstra Health’s Kyra Flow, the Medtasker platform helps provide visibility of tasks to clinical and support staff, securely capturing real-time data for analysis. This further enables hospital management to optimise workflows and workload management, operational planning, and compliance reporting. On a strategic level, Medtasker-generated data helps to inform business and policy decisions on health service level and even a state level.
