In a country the size of Australia, where the population is dispersed, it can be challenging to deliver care to regional and remote communities. As a global organisation that is focused on delivering the right care in the right place at the right time, Philips is proud to have collaborated with Heart of Australia to deliver a new ‘clinic on wheels’.
Heart of Australia recently unveiled HEART2 – a 26 metre truck – soon to begin its journey to provide specialist medical diagnosis and treatment to patients in regional communities in Queensland, Australia.
This is the second vehicle for Heart of Australia and it will be fitted with Philips healthcare solutions enabling the Heart of Australia program to reach more Australians in need of specialist care. The specialist equipment includes a defibrillators, an ECG machine, a patient monitoring system, an ultrasound, and Lumify - a handheld portable multi-system ultrasound device.
