Communicare appoints new General Manager

Community Health IT software provider Communicare Systems has appointed a new General Manager.

Sam Dean joins the team at Communicare after 14 years with UK information technology supplier EMIS.

Former general manager Brian Dunstan has transitioned into the position of Product Development Director.

The Perth-based company, which has 10 employees on site, specialises in flexible IT solutions for primary health care providers. Ninety-nine per cent of its client base focuses on Aboriginal health care, with the remaining one per cent made up of rural hospitals and clinics.

Its products are mostly used by health workers and nurses, and its customised QuickSmart system features large icons and graphics to assist health workers with limited literacy and numeracy skills.

Communicare Systems spokeswoman Heidi Tudehope said Mr Dean’s appointment marks a time of expansion for the company.

Mr Dean will be responsible for the day-to-day operations and planning functions of Communicare.

His former company, EMIS, is the UK’s leading primary healthcare IT supplier, with 55 per cent of British doctors using its programs.
