Medical Research Futures Fund: Digital Health Transformation of Rural Primary Health Care Through an Innovative Digital Indigenous Primary Health Care Delivery Model: ID-INSPIRED

The University of Queensland’s Rural Clinical School has partnered with Goondir Health Services (GHS) and the University of Southern Queensland to design and develop a new model of care (ID-INSPIRED). This program integrates Virtual Health Services (VHS), Point of Care Testing (POCT) and digital technologies to transform the way primary health care is delivered. Patients with multiple chronic diseases, equipped with Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) devices, receive quality health care through the VHS program. Clinicians can screen, monitor, and manage patients via digital communication, empowering patients to have an active role in their own health while ensuring equitable access to culturally safe health care.

ID-INSPIRED model aims to improve health outcomes, reduce costs (avoided hospitalisations, reduction in travel), enhance patients’ quality of life with continuity of care, as well as address health care system workflow inefficiencies, by bridging geographical and cultural barriers through digital innovation. The community-driven approach will provide a tangible, culturally appropriate model of care that is readily accepted and adopted. An increased focus on co-designed approach, will make the model sustainable and scalable, ensuring that successful outcomes are achieved and lead to long-term health impact.

This project will ultimately inform strategies to address the high burden of chronic disease among rural and remote communities by providing a culturally safe, co-designed and Indigenous-led health service.
