Extensia's role as the hub for Gold Coast integrated care program
With integrated care programs revolving around a GP-led medical home and hospital admission risk stratification tools starting to take off around the country, the Gold Coast has also got in on the act and is now working with more than 1300 patients at high risk of readmission to keep them out of hospital.
So far, the program has seen more than 30,000 event summaries uploaded to a shared care record based on local firm Extensia's RecordPoint technology, which is accessible by GPs and hospital specialists through their clinical software and provides full access to the patients as well. Extensia is also currently working with the Queensland Ambulance Service to develop an app that will provide paramedics with relevant information about the patient and the record is open to any health professional who the patient nominates.
