Northland DHB links rural hospitals to Whangarei ICU by Zoom

Northland District Health Board has rolled out a new acute care telehealth network using Zoom video conferencing to link its rural hospitals to the intensive care unit at the DHB's main referral centre at Whangarei.

The service uses purposely designed clinical carts that are easy to manoeuvre and suitable for use in acute clinical environments and which allow for remote patient assessment and management by clinicians at Whangarei ICU, who are able to have complete control of the technology. It also provides Whangarei Hospital with an after-hours telestroke service.
