Corryong’s transfer rates have dropped significantly since the partnership commenced; between 80 and 90 per cent of patient cases that would previously have been transported to Wodonga Hospital have been able to be treated in situ under the guidance of MED’s experienced clinicians.
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.
Regional hospitals and clinics can benefit from using a single My Emergency Doctor solution or a suite of them. The best solutions for our regional partners include FACEM On-Demand, Virtual Board Rounds and Hospital in the Home.
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.
