Fast, expert medical support for Australian regional, rural and remote hospitals

My Emergency Doctor seeks to serve communities that face the challenges of remoteness, and who face shortages of senior clinical decision makers. We understand the unique demands of regional, rural and remote health care practitioners and administrators. 

All of our senior emergency specialist doctors (FACEMs) can support hospital clinicians by working closely with them as medical emergency consultants. They are skilled to provide secondary support or supervision for nurses, clinical care coordinators and other doctors through rapid diagnosis and treatment of patients, prescribing medication, arranging referrals to specialists for non-urgent cases and creating event summaries post-consultation.

My Emergency Doctor supports regional, rural and remote hospitals in delivering better patient health outcomes through immediate connection and accurate patient management. We work to become a seamless part of your team.

As the most senior of emergency specialists, our consulting emergency physicians at My Emergency Doctor are trained to make important critical decisions. All are Fellows of the Australasian College for Emergency Medicine (FACEMs), registered with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) and go through a rigorous selection and credentialing process.

Additionally, they provide consultations under a robust clinical governance framework, including monthly case study reviews and performance management.

 

"The best thing that has happened to us..."

"Being able to access specialists at My Emergency Doctor is the best thing that has happened to us. It helps us manage acute patients and ensure they receive effective, timely and safe care."

- Sharon Edmondson, Director of Nursing and Clinical Care, Corryong Health (VIC)
