Organisation: Emergency Consult

Date of project: Live since May 2020

Secure platform for telemedicine that is run by Emergency consultants ,is available to the general public but also to aged care facilities, nurse led clinics, pharmacies and Rural ED's where we can support when they struggle to recruit staff or find on call locums. We can support primary care by helping manage urgent after hours or acute overflow in their clinics especially in the rural areas where often the nearest after-hours or ED is more than an hour away.
