Philips wins $6.5m contract for remote monitoring service at Royal Perth

Philips Healthcare has won a contract worth more than $6.5 million over five years to provide an integrated care management solution for WA's East Metropolitan Health Service's new Command Centre.

Based at Royal Perth Hospital and also covering Armadale Hospital, the service will eventually monitor 100 beds from the new centre, which opened in April.

full visibility of the patient journey from ambulance pick-up to discharge. Wouldn't we be better avoiding the need for the ambulance in the first place? Another innovation at the expensive end of the health system. Let's start monitoring in the community and avoid preventable admissions. That will save real money.... Steve H

Irrespective of the amount of monitoring in the community, there will still be a need for people to come into the hospital by ambulance. They could have been knocked over by a car for example. I for one am looking forward to seeing how successful this is.
