Using technology to connect society in Northern Ireland
Using technology to improve citizens’ lives in Northern Ireland
We play a big role in the economic and social life of Northern Ireland. We find clever ways to use communications and data-driven technology that help the country’s public and private sector to work better.
We work together with local suppliers and services to change the way we live –at home, at work, in health, education, government and the community.
And we help to transform businesses and public sector organisations. Offering tailored support. And using our know-how and expertise to guide them on their digital transformation journey.
Partnering with the Belfast Trust for healthcare transformation
We’ve been working with the NHS in the UK for many years. Our relationship is based on understanding the challenges and objectives around health and social care. We were pleased to have the opportunity to work in partnership with the Belfast Trust.
In stage one of this two stage project, we’re working to consolidate voice and data services: making sure everyone in the Trust gets a consistent quality of service. Upgrading the wireless infrastructure is also a priority, bringing radio and paging services onto an IP network.
In the longer-term there are plans to extend a medical asset tracking application over the wireless network. There’s even the possibility of making unified communications available across the Health and Social Care Trust. And potentially to patients in their homes. Connecting them to their carers quickly and efficiently.
“We chose BT to develop our next generation of voice and data communications services that will greatly enhance healthcare services to our 340,000 patients and clients. We look forward to working with BT on delivering real benefits to staff and patients, and facilitating new ways of communication and teamwork.”
