State-of-the-art telehealth facilities for South West Sydney
Improving patient care is the goal behind the implementation of new state-of-the-art telehealth facilities which have just opened in Liverpool, Campbelltown and Bankstown-Lidcombe Hospitals.
The facilities include the latest digital imaging, information technologies and video-conferencing facilities which will allow clinicians, across multiple disciplines, to connect to determine the best way to care for a patient. The room is installed with multiple touch LCD screens, ceiling-mounted cameras and multi-directional microphones integrated with latest digital information and communication technologies, including scans and a digital microscope.
The facilities provide clinicians with real-time access to imaging and diagnostic information which helps to provide a patient’s full story. This information then allows for better informed decisions about patient care.
