Victoria plugs the pandemic fall-out with health-focused budget

The Victorian government will invest $698 million over four years in its Better at Home program to expand the care patients can access in their home in a landmark program boosted by the success of home-based and virtual care programs during the pandemic.

Today's state budge also allocates $65 million over four years to deliver an electronic mental health and wellbeing record, an information exchange platform, and an online portal to support mental health and wellbeing services.

There is a small amount going towards the safer digital healthcare for Victorian public health services initiative to upgrade the network infrastructure needed to support and deliver patient-related services such as pathology, diagnostic imaging and patient management systems.
