Civilian Applications

  • From a civilian perspective, the SABRN Health “Pods” will use ‘de-centralisation’ of healthcare as the key capability.
  • From a civilian perspective, the “Pods” will also:
    • Provide better access to healthcare for our rural and remote communities;
    • Reduce the load on the Emergency Departments of our public hospitals;
    • Stratify appropriate healthcare earlier for patients by providing earlier diagnostic and treatment opportunities, thereby reducing waiting times for patients;
    • Significantly reducing the healthcare spending of Area Health Networks, and therefore the States and Territories.
