Primary Health Networks helping their residents access rapid, cost-efficient, and high-quality care outside the ED.

A growing number of PHNs use our After Hours Solution to expand equitable access to excellent out of hours medical care and alleviate pressure on over-burdened EDs.

 The After Hours solution encompasses:

  • a direct to community option that allows residents to access after-hours consults with an Australian-qualified emergency specialist doctor. Currently, residents of some of our partnered PHNs External Link can access My Emergency Doctor at no cost in the after hours period.
  • support for RACF residents outside their usual GP’s hours.

The South Western Sydney Primary Health Network (SWSPHN) has found that the After-Hours Solution addresses the urgent-care needs of their diverse communities. And it helps reduces the number of low acuity ED admissions and alleviates pressure on the regions’ healthcare workers. We recommend the SWSPHN case study below.

SWSPHN Case Study

Since September 2020, anyone who lives or works in SWSPHN’s seven LGAs has been able to call a region-specific phone number for a free consultation with one of MED’s qualified emergency specialists after hours or on weekends.

More broadly, our After Hours service has been shown to:

  • reduce unnecessary presentations to busy EDs (with 70-89% patients managed in-situ)
  • minimise costs (projected return on investment of ~$2 for every $1 spent on the service)

Our FACEM-led After Hours service is well established, achieves good outcomes and represents great value to the healthcare system.
