Registrations now open for Australia’s leading Medical IT Summit

Registrations are now open for the Bp Premier Summit 2020, Best Practice Software’s popular event that brings Bp Premier users together with the Best Practice team, vendors, health providers, medical organisations and a world class group of presenters. It will be held from Friday 22nd May to Sunday 24th May 2020 at the Brisbane Exhibition and Convention Centre at South Bank.

Best Practice CEO Dr Frank Pyefinch said it will be a tremendous event.

“This is our 6th Bp Summit and we believe we’ve excelled ourselves with an excellent program” Dr Pyefinch said. “Bp Premier Summit 2020 will provide delegates with a wealth of experience, new skills and new ideas from inspiring speakers, plus they’ll still have time to unwind and catch up with colleagues, which is always a great part of our Summits”.

With so many exciting developments to showcase, Bp Premier Summit 2020 is an event not to be missed.

“Bp Premier’s functionality now goes beyond the Practice, becoming the digital nerve centre linking our customers to an ever-widening network of medical services, health providers and government institutions, which will be covered in detail in world class presentations” said Dr Pyefinch. “With Bp Premier users also connecting to patients like never before with the Best Health App there is much to celebrate”.

The 2020 Summit will also give Bp Premier users a unique opportunity to engage with many more of Bp Premier’s partners and vendors of integrated and compatible technologies.

“But it won’t be all business” said Dr Pyefinch. “Delegates will enjoy a Brisbane River cruise on the amazing Yot Club Super Yacht on the Saturday night”.

Registrations are now open, with Early Bird rate available until the end of the 2019 and can be made directly here.  And for a full rundown and the latest news visit the dedicated Bp Premier Summit 2020 website here.

Best Practice recognised at Business Excellence Awards

At a glittering Awards Ceremony on Saturday night, Best Practice Software was announced as Business of the Year at the Bundaberg and District Chambers Business Excellence Awards.   The company also received the Manufacturer of the Year Award and its Manager, Marketing, Communications and Events, Trish Mears was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award.   Best Practice Chief Operating Officer Craig Hodges said the entire team was delighted with the result.   “I’m so humbled to accept these awards in manufacturing and business excellence on behalf of a greater team of more than 150 people who make a tireless contribution each and every day” Mr Hodges said.   “More than recognition of our team’s efforts though, I think this award as a major local manufacturing business cements the Bundaberg region’s place as a regional innovation capital in Australia with a strong health-tech focus.  This regional economy has been built on sugar cane, small crops, distilled spirits, and light manufacturing, but we’ve proven its place as an IT and health-technology contributor to Australia and New Zealand.  It also shows that regional Australia has an important place in developing cutting-edge technology with global potential” Mr Hodges added.   Mr Hodges paid tribute to the vision and direction of the business’ founders, Dr Frank & Lorraine Pyefinch and his team of software design, development, sales, and support professionals located throughout Australasia.  “We have assembled a great team, who are entirely focussed on quality innovative health technology products and service, and their contribution underpins our award wins”.   Mr Hodges was especially pleased with the Chambers’ acknowledgement of the efforts of Trish Mears, adding “Trish exemplifies everything that’s great about our values – care for others, engagement within the community, people-focus, and active contribution to medical training and positive clinical outcomes.  Trish is a true local champion, and I’m very proud of everything she contributes to the local communities in which we operate”.   (Photo L to R: Bp’s GM Customer & Commercial Janet Whitmore, BUSY At Work’s Betty Lappin and Bp COO Craig Hodges.
