RPAvirtual extends to vRehab and vICU

Royal Prince Alfred Hospital in Sydney has extended its rpavirtual service first developed for palliative and chronic care patients and then ramped up to provide care for COVID-19 patients at home to a new virtual rehabilitation program and an intensive care service for critically ill patients at Broken Hill Base Hospital in western NSW.

rpavirtual was established as a proof of concept project in early 2020, just as the coronavirus hit. It was rapidly scaled up to provide help for COVID-19 positive patients, with a 24/7 virtual care centre set up staffed by RPA nurses, with Sydney Local Health District (SLHD) community nurses also visiting patients in their homes.
