To round out the Care closer to home package as part of our cardiovascular program of work, we have one last exciting opportunity that is uniquely focused on supporting urgent care centres (UCCs) in regional and rural Victoria. 

The Timely management of chest pain pilot aims to design and pilot a streamlined model of care that incorporates a telemedicine service to support UCCs in regional and rural Victoria in the management of chest pain presentations for up to 10 months. 

As part of this project, we will be exploring and piloting an IT solution for the secure and efficient sharing of digital ECG images between UCCs and the hub site to allow for timely and efficient ECG interpretation. 

We are looking to work with one large metro or regional public health service to demonstrate their clinical leadership by taking on the role of the pilot hub site to support UCC staff in accessing timely specialist advice for the management of patients with chest pain and/or other symptoms suggestive of a heart attack. 

We are also looking for up to ten urgent care centres to join us as pilot sites to trial this model of care.
