The digital health consortium has been formed along with Unisono Pty Ltd and Icon Global.
Importantly, the consortium is aiming to deliver the next level in intelligent management of vulnerable people in the community.
The integrated product will allow the loop of information on a person’s current health status to be closed and rapid response services to be provided.
The consortium will initially be based in Geelong due to the potential support being offered through the Regional Jobs and Infrastructure Package Grant Program for the Geelong Region.
This is part of a federal matched funding programme offering $220mln nationally, with up to A$20mln on offer in the Geelong region.
The consortium is expected to establish its national infrastructure in the Geelong region if the funding is granted.
