How Australia's largest hospital and health service has responded to COVID-19

Brisbane's Metro North Hospital and Health Service is hoping to shift 30 per cent of its outpatients clinics to virtual services as the pandemic continues, moving beyond traditional telehealth to a virtual care system that allows for the real-time exchange of information.

The HHS also developed its own tracing app for patients arriving in Australia with suspected coronavirus, a workforce attendance tracker to keep a handle on clinical staff, a screening outcome notification app to let patients know by text of a negative diagnosis, and it is even biofabricating its own protective equipment, with TGA approval for its 3D printed face masks.
