Located in Adelaide, South Australia, Hampstead Health is dedicated to providing comprehensive, high quality health services to people in the local community.

According to Toni Jones, human resources manager at Hampstead Health Family Practice, the facility has a large, busy and noisy reception area, making clear communications with incoming clients difficult. Additionally, the pandemic has led to the installation of plexiglass security screens which have dramatically reduced cohesive communication.

“We needed a solution that would protect the health and safety of our customers and our team and improve direct, two-way communication in the reception area,” Jones explained.

To design and install an effective solution, Jones approached their reseller AV Australia, who then turned to Exertis ProAV Australia, their business partner specializing in AV distribution in the region.

After the consultation, Exertis recommended the Contacta Bridge Bar system which is part of the Window Intercom System family. Exertis installed a demo system for the customer and released a one-week trial. He recommended AJS Lighting Sound Events to serve as a local installation partner on the project.

According to Exertis, the Contacta bridge bar system provides full duplex communication for staff and clients / patients, including an integrated hearing loop for clients wearing hearing aids.

The other advantage is that the amplified sound field is limited to the vicinity of the speakers, which helps maintain customer privacy, which is vital in the healthcare and banking industries.

Since installing the Contacta system, Hampstead’s Jones has seen improved two-way communication between staff and customers. “[After] By installing the Contacta Bridge Bar System, communication with our patients is so much easier. It is no longer necessary to have a voice heard and most importantly the reception staff are extremely satisfied with the system, ”Jones concluded.
