The Department of Health – eHealth Queensland has an exciting opportunity for two consumer representatives to be members of the strategic, high level Virtual Healthcare Working Group. The Working Group will provide leadership and oversight of system transformation through the implementation of the Queensland Health Virtual Healthcare Strategy. The Working Group will provide a statewide forum for the identification of virtual healthcare model opportunities and make recommendations on initiatives with a particular focus on Emergency Department demand.
Queensland Health’s Virtual Healthcare Strategy sets out an exciting pathway to support the delivery of this care to patients through innovative ideas and technology. It will mean more patients can receive care in their home and in their community, regardless of their location, making healthcare more convenient and an accessible service for all.
This opportunity would suit a consumer or carer representative with extensive committee experience, either at the Hospital and Health Service, or Statewide level.
