The Princess Alexandra Hospital Telehealth Centre is a telehealth facility for PAH staff. The Centre, opened in 2012, supports a range of clinical telehealth services to patients in rural and remote Queensland using telehealth technology. COH works collaboratively with the PAH Telehealth Centre and Metro South Health (MSH) staff to implement and evaluate telehealth services. The COH had a key role in designing and establishing the PAH Telehealth Centre in 2012 – and was one of the first hospital-based telehealth centres in Australia.  The COH also led telehealth service development activities and the delivery of telehealth services within MSH for the first ten years (from 2012-2021).

The Centre offers support to address broader aspects of telehealth service development, such as demand profiling for individual departments, development of telehealth protocols, research collaborations and access to current innovations in technology.

The Centre aims to:

  • Increase the volume of telehealth activity conducted throughout the PA Hospital.
  • Facilitate the integration of telehealth into routine practice by engaging with all clinical areas of the PA Hospital.
  • Support the delivery of a broad range of health services to all areas of Queensland.
  • Reduce the need for patients to travel to Brisbane by, where clinically appropriate, offering telehealth appointments as a substitute for their face-to-face consultations.
  • Reduce specialist travel by combining telehealth with existing outreach programs.
  • Work in collaboration with Metro South Health to develop innovative clinical telehealth service models across the health service.
