The Building Partnerships Grants provides funding to partners to develop innovative, new-to-market solutions. To be successful the solution must use an enabling technology to address a compelling industry need. ‘Enabling Technologies’ are new technologies or new uses for existing technologies that enable new products, services, or more efficient processes.
In collaboration with the Royal Flying Doctor Service and NSW Health, Visionflex has developed the capability for the ProEX Telehealth Hub to be used in “unattended mode” where a local nurse is not available. The innovative “VF-Cabinet” has a remote unlock feature that allows the doctor in Broken Hill to unlock the cabinet remotely and give access to the patient for a self-examination via video conferencing.
The second stage of the Visionflex project to bring telehealth services to remote communities in NSW was successfully completed with the deployment of a VF-Cabinet and ProEX Telehealth Hub to Wanaaring.
