Gippsland PHN supporting remote monitoring platform for COVID-19 patients

Victoria's Gippsland Primary Health Network is offering general practices in the region as well as the Gippsland Contact Tracing Unit the opportunity to remotely monitor patients with suspected or confirmed cases of COVID-19 in their homes.

Gippsland PHN is using the LifeguardMobile platform from US firm Lifeguard Health Networks, which includes a web portal and mobile app for health providers and a mobile app for patients that allows them to report their outcomes and vital signs.

Care coordinators at general practices and at the Gippsland Contact Tracing Unit can then monitor patients through a triage dashboard. Action can be taken if patients show signs outside of agreed clinical thresholds by contacting them via telehealth or encouraging them to visit the GP or urgent care service.
