St Andrew's rolling out patient monitoring technology to target readmissions

Adelaide's St Andrew's Hospital is rolling a mobile patient monitoring system developed by local firm Personify Care that allows nurses, specialist practices and hospitals to detect when a recently discharged surgical patient is at risk of a complication and intervene before their condition escalates.

Personify Care has undergone extensive evaluation through pilot studies since 2015 at surgical practices in Adelaide and at St Andrew’s, which has since announced a hospital-wide roll-out of the platform in collaboration with health insurer Bupa for patients across all surgical procedures.
