Acute Care Advice

The ED4GP telehealth pilot was conducted between 2018-2020.
It provided real-time specialist video telehealth consultations for patients presenting with acute clinical presentations to GP clinics.

The ED4GP service achieved the following important outcomes:

  • Significantly improved quality and safety of acute patient care at GP practices
  • Hospital Avoidance:

    Assessment by our specialists heavily reduced referral rates to hospital. This saved time, travel costs and unnecessary testing and admission for patients, while reducing the load on overflowing Emergency Departments and saving substantial costs for the health system.

  • Collegiate real-time support for GPs practicing in regional and remote locations to assist with GP retention.

For GPs, we highly recommend you utilise our free Acute Care Guidelines provided by our Acute Care Experts. This site provides a wealth of resources to assist clinicians dealing with patients presenting with Acute, Sub-Acute and “Acute on Chronic” clinical presentations. This includes COVID-19 Resources!

With government or other financial support, the service can be easily reactivated to supply any region of Australia and produce widespread benefits for patients, GPs and the health system.
