Welcome to the home and base of Best Practice Software. While we now operate right across Australia and New Zealand – providing quality clinical and practice management software solutions – we were born and bred here in Bundaberg.
We’ve developed this public artwork to celebrate the massive contribute our team provides in the field of medical technology and also to the local Bundaberg community. We’re proud to share our special story with you in the format of this hand-painted mural, which celebrates the story of how Dr & Mrs Pyefinch developed and grew an idea of creating an electronic medical practice record into one of Australasia’s most successful Health Technology groups, driven by the spirit of innovation and its personal connectedness with Health Practitioners and Patients.
In the mural you’ll see how the Finch connects life between the earth and the sun, and how DNA strands interconnect all we do in supporting Healthcare Practitioners. Some special elements of the mural include:
- For local First Nations People, “Ginmine” (the Sun) is the giver of all life, with science providing its connection to evolution on Earth, and spiritually how it explores and brings light to unseen energies in all living animals and plants
- A tribute to the Rainbow Serpent for the significance it plays in creation being, and the stunning imagery of the beginning of time and greater movement in the cosmos
- Dr & Mrs Pyefinch’s personal stamp on the quality and interoperability of our software products, represented by the computer code for “Pi” and the Finch bird (together, as Pyefinch), which soars high above
- A handwritten extract of the Hippocratic Oath – so sacrament to Medical Professionals in all they do – which reads “Most especially must I tread with care in matters of life and death”
The massive mural, which spans an 28m-wide wall on the side of their Woondooma Street building, tells the story of how Best Practice founders, Dr & Mrs Pyefinch, developed and grew their idea of creating an electronic medical practice record into one of Australasia’s most successful Health Technology groups.
The artwork’s bespoke design has been created by local artists Mark Terry, Nicole Wone, and Taylor Klaasen, who incorporated several specific elements relating to both the heritage of Best Practice Software, and the First Nations People upon whose land the Operations Hub resides. Some key inclusions, such as the tribute to the Rainbow Serpent for the significance it plays in creation being, and a handwritten extract of the Hippocratic Oath – so sacrament to Medical Professionals in all they do – are the tied together by the inclusion of Dr & Mrs Pyefinch’s personal stamp and the Best Practice company logo, the mathematical symbol for “Pi” and the Finch bird (together, as Pyefinch).
