In November of 2011 The Farrer Park Company (TFPC) of Singapore and MEDITECH Australia executed a contract to install a full MEDITECH EHR Solution into their landmark and innovative integrated hub for wellness and healthcare - a first in Asia. Integrated Backup and Disaster recovery solutions are a critical cornerstone of the overall framework and thus MEDITECH’s partner, BridgeHead Software, with its 10 years plus experience of working closely with MEDITECH and its customers on integrated Backup and Disaster recovery solutions, was the perfect fit.
Work on the project is progressing according to schedule with the software load and Backup solutions now complete. “During the install of the MEDITECH software and BridgeHead Backup solutions the BridgeHead staff worked tirelessly along side the MEDITECH staff ensuring the install and initial testing ran according to schedule, reaffirming why BridgeHead remains the preferred backup solution for MEDITECH and their customers,” says Douglas Murray, General Manager of MEDITECH Australia.
