Chronic disease management and monitoring, a study from Australia

Read how a successful Staying Strong telehealth pilot halved the cost of chronic disease management and monitoring in rural and remote communities in Australia.

Telehealth for chronic disease management and monitoring in rural Australia

Nov 19, 2018

Community care provider integratedliving has begun a roll out of telehealth services to 13 different regions in four states of Australia, following the success of its Staying Strong telehealth pilot project.

The pilot trialled in-home and hub-based monitoring of vital signs for older Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. It was delivered both in-home and through telehealth hubs at local Aboriginal medical centres which provide a safe and welcoming environment for older Indigenous community members to learn about and use the telehealth service.

Using the Tunstall myclinic telehealth solution, including a touchscreen tablet, Integrated Care Platform (ICP) monitoring software and vital sign peripherals, participants self monitored their vital signs.

The project monitored participants with varying conditions, including high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes and high blood cholesterol, with integratedliving registered nurses working with participants and their GP to develop individual health and monitoring plans based on these health needs.
