As demand for specialist advice grows, for a patient group that has difficulty with travel, new solutions are required to provide access in a timely, reliable and affordable manner.  Our telegeriatrics program exploits new technologies and the internet to link older people with health professionals.  Strategies include video-consultation, online systems and remote monitoring.  Our work embraces home care, primary care practice, small rural hospitals and residential aged care facilities.  The Centre works in partnership with the CHSR Telehealth Program to advance this work.

Models of remote consultation developed by CRGM have been widely implemented across Queensland, within Queensland Health, and in the private sector. CHSR has established a service entitled "Res-e-Care" to support private sector consultations into Residential Aged Care Facilities and primary care practices.

This work is led by Professor Len Gray and Dr Melinda Martin-Khan.
