eHealth Queensland looks beyond digital hospitals to capacity control

With Queensland's flagship digital hospital in operation for 18 months and the technology rolling out across the state, eHealth Queensland is taking a look at other international trends to build upon, including virtual hospitals and the potential of capacity command centres like the one that opened at Johns Hopkins in Baltimore late last year.

Equipped with an array of real-time and predictive information systems from GE feeding a huge bank of monitors and dashboards in a room staffed by 24 people, the centre (pictured) has seen massive improvements in patient flow and patient care in a hospital that already boasts it is the best in the world.
