Argus Assurance

What is Argus Assurance?

The Argus Assurance Client Network Support (CNS) Program is for major Argus client organisations such as hospitals, pathology, radiology and other diagnostic services practices, and large specialist practices.  These organisations are referred to as ‘CNS organisations’.

Argus Assurance extends end-to-end technical support for a dependable messaging connection between the CNS organisations and their nominated practices (Assurance practices) with whom they communicate using Argus. It ensures that practices that have not taken out Argus’s Priority Help Desk Support for immediate problem rectification will be supported for message receipt capability with the CNS organisation.

The CNS organisation must nominate the practice locations for which this Assurance support is to be provided.  A per practice cost at all nominated sites will be payable at onset for the ensuing twelve months.  Any new practices requiring Assurance support may be nominated by the CNS organisation to enter the arrangement during the twelve months, and will be charged at a pro rata rate until the twelve-month anniversary is reached.  At the anniversary date the CNS organisation must provide an updated list of practice locations and practitioners requiring Assurance support for the following twelve months.

Priority Support will be provided by the Argus HelpDesk to assist any of the nominated practice sites in receiving communications from the CNS organisation.
