Projects drive healthcare innovation

Seek linkA total of 21 projects driving innovation and collaboration in integrated and connected care will receive a share of $2 million in funding through Metro North Hospital and Health Service.

Chief Executive, Ken Whelan said the projects will pioneer new and improved ways of delivering health services.

“The projects have been proposed by our staff and community partners and demonstrate Metro North’s commitment to generating solutions from the ground up,” Mr Whelan said.

“Finding new ways to deliver healthcare has never been more important as we face an ever increasing demand for services.”

“I look forward to seeing these projects come to life to drive improvement in service delivery and health outcomes for the patients and communities we serve.”

The projects are supported through the organisation’s key innovation programs, LINK (Leading Innovation through Networking and Knowledge-sharing) and SEED (Support, Explore, Excel and Deliver).

Ten LINK and 11 SEED projects will be delivered in 2015-16.

The LINK and SEED programs both focus on the areas of hospital admission and discharge practices, avoidance of unnecessary hospital admissions and readmissions.

LINK supports projects with external community partners with a focus on integrated care and SEED supports internal projects.
