Perth Private Hospital to Expand Rollout of Home Care Platform for Surgery Patients Post-Discharge

Following the success of the Personify Care platform in minimising readmissions after general surgeries, St John of God Murdoch Hospital is rolling it out to the specialist surgery wards. St John of God Murdoch Hospital in Perth is rolling out its "Healthcare at Home" platform to surgical specialty wards including urology and gynaecology following its success in reducing preventable patient readmissions in the general surgical wards.

In 2021, Australian digital health company Personify Care delivered a platform at the 530-bed private hospital, enabling post-surgery home care for patients with community-based clinical support.
