Mental health service evaluation

January 2017December 2019

Metro South Health (MSH) are undertaking a comprehensive project to introduce telehealth models of care across all service areas including inpatient, community and emergency services. All facilities within Metro South (e.g. PAH, QEII, Beaudesert, Stradbroke and Bay Islands) will be involved in the project.

The proposed service implementation will be accompanied by a robust, multi-disciplinary assessment to identify perceived clinical effectiveness, patient, caregiver, and community perspectives, economic aspects, and organisational aspects.

The Centre for Online Health will partner with MSH Mental Health and MSH Telehealth to undertake the evaluation. The evaluation will use the Method for Assessment of Telemedicine (MAST) framework.
