The increasing number of covid patients again increases the requirement for virtual ED. This will help in propagating more free ambulances.

Northern Health will soon be expanding the virtual ED. The focus is on the residential aged care facilities. The Covid 19 patients are once again increasing in the region. The expansion is part of the $122 million funding. The state government also granted the money for improving the health operation of special ambulances in the region.

This will increase the overall capacity of virtual ED. They can now double the number of patients to diagnose. An increase of 125 patients a day. The focus is severally on non-life-threatening emergencies. The nurses and doctors are always there to diagnose patients via video call. This will also help the paramedics to connect to patients fastly. The virtual assessment, referral, and management will be faster.

The funding is part of the Victorian government initiative. It will work on the fresh outbreak due to covid 19 variants. The entire case in the region rose to 10,000. Nine hundred people are currently hospitalized. The health department also announced a report accepting the 99% rise in the Covid 19 patients. It is a comparative study about last month.

Daniel Andrews, Victorian Premier, also stated, “We’ll have more paramedics working alongside our nurses and doctors, to get more support to Victorians who can be treated in their home, [p]lus the tools to get patients the best care in the right place if they need to go to the hospital….”

A new ZEDOC platform also came into existence last month. It is from Northern Health. The platform will take up or diagnose the patients at its virtual ED. This will better configure the patient intake in the tracking processes. The implementation is currently focused on the simplification of virtual ED.

As a result, the total number of digital patient intake and clinical tracking progress will be via the same clinical platform. The patient flow in the department recently expanded in Victoria’s healthcare.
