Expressions of Interest: Real-time Remote Monitoring of Chronic Conditions Trial

Western Victoria PHN (WVPHN) has funding available to provide 50, 12-month CareMonitor licences to general practices throughout the region as part of an 18-month real-time remote monitoring of chronic conditions trial. WVPHN is now accepting Expressions of Interest (EOI) to identify suitable practices to partake in the trial.

The Real-time Remote Monitoring of Chronic Conditions Trial provides a smart approach to enhancing patient care in western Victoria, particularly for managing patients in between in-person appointments. Remote monitoring helps remove barriers to patients who may currently face issues with attending regular appointments including patients in rural and remote settings and those with mobility issues.

What is CareMonitor?

CareMonitor is a telehealth platform developed and distributed by an Australian company, based in Sydney. CareMonitor is compatible with the PEN-CS data collection software currently used by many general practices as part of their data submission requirements for PIP-QI accreditation.
