Ironbark Develops Healthcare Software to Partner HCF and Family Care

May 21st, 2012 by ironbark

Ironbark Software have developed systems for newly partnered HCF and Family Care allowing HCF’s private health care customers to take advantage of Family Care’s after hours medical services.

Launched on Thursday 17th May the system operated without a hiccup. Family Care received their first HCF member call and processed it seamlessly; the customer details were retrieved, the relevant discounts applied, and a mobile doctor was sent to their location for treatment.

This revolutionary system is owned by Family Care and designed and implemented by long term provider Ironbark Software. It allows Family Care to retrieve HCF client data through an instant search technology similar to Google instant search that queries HCF’s web service to retrieve client information within two seconds.

“The relationship between Ironbark Software and Family Care has been extensive – over 30 years – and it is highly productive, professional, and valued,” commented Stuart Tait, Family Care CEO.

This innovative technology was designed specifically for the HCF – Family Care partnership and employs the most advanced technology available enabling it to function much more quickly and smoothly than systems performing the same tasks on the market.

Other medical industry systems such as Medicare’s search system require completed data fields before searching for a match. The Ironbark system starts searching for a positive match as soon as the first piece of data, such as a last name, date of birth, or member number is entered.

This partnership has been extremely beneficial for all members; it has expanded family care’s customer base and has driven them closer to their goal of improving Australia’s over reliance on hospitals. As Australia’s largest not for profit private health insurer, HCF are able to provide greater value to their customers by expanding their services with after hours medical care. Finally Ironbark Software are able to once again establish themselves as leaders in research and development of industry specific software.

The affiliation between Ironbark Software and Family Care continue through their next project – remote health monitoring.

Unleashing your Business Potential with SuREAL!

February 8th, 2010 by ironbark

Ironbark Software is proud to announce its partnership with SuREAL.

The team at SuREAL are respectably positioned in the business world with their hands-on expertise on Business Strategic Planning. Both directors, Julienne Barton & Diana King, have an impressive array of business experience spanning over 25 years.

SuREAL will be teaming up with Ironbark to bring you valuable tips on how to unleash your business potential with a fresh and powerful approach.

Here is the first of, hopefully, many future insights from SuREAL for the Success of YOUR Business.

Unleashing your Business Potential
Happy New Year! Strategic Planning doesn’t need to be aligned with a new calendar or financial year … but often these events trigger the need and desire to do so. Especially with many of us returning rejuvenated from our Christmas/New Year holidays, with the opportunity to see things more clearly.

When we talk “Strategic Planning”, we are not referring to detailed operational plans. It is all about taking a bigger picture view of your business and providing an ideal opportunity to “work on your business”! Your marketing and operational plans can then be aligned with your strategic direction, en route to unleashing your true potential.

And best of all … time out of your hectic day to challenge and stretch your current status quo … starting with your current direction or even taking a fresh new start! And more importantly … achieving strategic alignment with the owners and directors of your businesses and your Team – existing and future recruits.

Having a clear strategic direction will help attract the “right” Clients and the “right” Team. It will provide the basis upon which you make key decisions in your business. Ultimately, it is all about enhancing the performance of your business.

This is the first of a series of articles on strategic planning, taking you step by step all the way … using a Strategic Planning process that really works!!!

We will start with developing the Core Foundations upon which to build your plan … being your values, passion & purpose.

> Core values are the non-negotiables and are the cornerstone of your underlying beliefs (also your desired culture).
Can you clearly articulate what the core values of your business are? Are they non-negotiable … are you walking the talk? Do they form part of your recruitment process? Are they front of mind when acquiring or merging with other businesses? Are they reflected through all your communications?

> Passion is the fuel driving the business. Our passion is unleashing your business potential. What is yours?

> Purpose is the reason your business exists. What is your reason for being? Can you clearly articulate it?

Are the Board of Directors in alignment with your core foundations? Is your senior management team in alignment? Does your website reflect it? Are they central to the way you conduct your business?

We successfully work with businesses to not only help them clearly articulate what their core foundations are but to work with their Board of Directors and Senior Management Team to achieve alignment … and in turn work with the broader Team, bring ALL on board.

It is not just about having core foundations … unless there is alignment, cracks will occur and the foundations upon which the business is being built will flounder.

If you would like to discuss how we can help you articulate your core foundations and all importantly an opportunity to work more effectively as a Team (and with all the business owners) please do not hesitate to contact us via
