Call to flag RACF residents in GP software to improve aged care monitoring

Researchers have proposed the inclusion of a flag in general practice clinical software that would populate the MBS and PBS datasets in order to identify residential aged care residents and enhance monitoring of aged care.

They have also recommended the federal government continue and expand access to MBS funded telehealth services to aged care residents following new figures showing how the COVID-19 pandemic saw a decline in face-to-face visits by GPs to Victorian RACFs.
