MedTech to Assist in Aboriginal Medical Services

$250,000 will be spent to replace outdated patient information systems in three South Australian communities.

The funding will be delivered via the Government’s Indigenous Australians’ Health Programme and will contribute to new systems to provide better patient care.

The Indigenous Australian’s Health Programme is a signature initiative of the Australian Government and aims to provide Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people with access to effective high quality, comprehensive, culturally appropriate, primary health care services in urban, regional, rural and remote locations across Australia.

Including through Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Services, wherever possible and appropriate, as well as services across the entire health system that deliver comprehensive, culturally appropriate primary health care.

The Minister for Indigenous Health, the Hon Ken Wyatt MP said the Federal Government is committed to working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and communities to develop practical, evidence-based policy and deliver programs that will make a real difference to the lives of First Australians.
