WA to expand Command Centre telehealth model for remote patient monitoring

The WA government is funding the expansion of the WA Country Health Service Command Centre model of telehealth to provide extra services from next year, including an acute specialist telehealth service, acute patient transport coordination and an advanced patient monitoring system to detect and respond to deteriorating patients remotely.

WACHS has run an Emergency Telehealth Service (ETS) from its base in Perth since 2012, offering 24/7 access to emergency doctors by video conference to 80 country hospitals, nursing posts and Silver Chain facilities.
