24/7 remote health monitoring

Reducing hospital presentations – improving care – supporting rural GPs

A 24/7 remote health monitoring service is now available throughout rural and regional South Australia.

Patients measure their vital signs at home using a monitoring kit and are assessed by a nurse or doctor live ‘on screen’ at any time of the day or night, seven days a week.

The thorough assessment process enables appropriate care for patients.

24/7 remote health monitoring:

  • reduces unnecessary hospital admissions
  • provides patients with round the clock assurance
  • supports diagnosis and treatment
  • helps patients remain at home
  • extends the care of rural GPs.

24/7 remote health monitoring is for:

  • patients at risk of visiting emergency departments due to a worsening condition, including heart and respiratory disease, infections and during post-operative recovery
  • aged care facility residents
  • COVID-19 patients with underlying chronic health conditions. 

The service is free and available to patients in rural and regional South Australia aged 16 and over with a GP referral.

The service is provided by the Rural Support Service’s Integrated Cardiovascular Clinical Network (iCCnet).

The service is funded by the Country SA Primary Health Network (PHN).
