Sydney, NSW (PRWEB) July 9, 2009
The NSW Department of Health has launched the Funnelback SaaS Hosted search service for its web site: http://www.health.nsw.gov.au
After a rigorous and extensive selection process Funnelback was chosen by the Department to replace an inadequate legacy technology. The Funnelback solution delivers superior relevancy, greater scalability and a delivery model that fits well with the NSW Health business requirements.
At a time when relevant and accurate access to public health information could not be more vital, NSW Health are taking steps to ensure they have best of breed technology in place.
Mr Stuart Beil, Funnelback's Executive Director says, "Funnelback is delighted to be working closely with NSW Health and delivering for them this new and important search service. NSW is now able to deliver to its citizens more effective search that will enhance the impact of their policies and programs. We solved many of the issues confronting NSW Health that were caused by their legacy system and allowed them to transition to the new Funnelback index and service rapidly and seamlessly. This, combined with advanced and sophisticated Funnelback capabilities such as automatic clustering of result sets, has dramatically changed the game for information access at the NSW Health website."
The NSW Department of Health works to provide the people of NSW with the best possible healthcare. The Department supports the executive and statutory roles of the NSW Minister for Health, the Minister Assisting the Minister for Health (Cancer) and the Minister Assisting the Minister for Health (Mental Health Services). The Department also monitors the performance of the NSW public health system, known as NSW Health.
