Under a new agreement with Telekom Malaysia [TM] and Healthcare IT Solutions [HITSSB], KPJ Rawang Specialist Hospital [KPJ Rawang] will see a high speed broadband network connectivity and entertainment solution installed for its patients.

TM's Hospitality Entertainment Solution for patients includes the latest ICT and entertainment package including in-building broadband solution [IBS]. TM's IPTV service - HyppTV - and a technical help desk service, said KPJ Rawang general manager Zaiton Sulaiman.

"As a Malaysian healthcare service provider, we are committed to delivering a great welcome to patients, right from the point of entry, with quality services and a pleasant environment. In line with this, KPJ Rawang has partnered with TM to introduce innovative systems, powered by TM's high-speed broadband (HSBB) network connectivity," said Zaiton.

He said this move "means that in-patients can use high quality user-friendly "plug-and-play" internet access where they can remain connected to their loved ones by sending email, photos, and videos or even update their social media networks."

Milestone achievement

TM Enterprise executive vice president, Dato' Ghazali Omar, said, "The Hospitality Entertainment Solution is our latest offering and we are pleased to inform that 35 hotels in Malaysia have already subscribed to TM's Hospitality Entertainment Solution and KPJ Rawang is the very first hospital and enterprise customer to subscribe to the service."
