Planning to go mobile.
Many isolated remote communities in Australia have no local access to health care, and significant challenges in travelling to the nearest town to receive access to a local doctor.
RARMS is working with a number of partners on the development of a new mobile health clinic, starting with Women and Babies
Rural and Remote Medical Services (RARMS) is Australia's most successful provider of rural and remote health and hospital services. We have been successfully recruiting permanent GPs, Locums, nurses, allied health professionals and medical workforce for 20 years into the most difficult to supply locations in Australia.
As the demands of our clients have grown RARMS has grown alongside them to become the leading supplier of rural-specific GP telehealth solutions through its Remote GP Service (RGPS). Working with local health networks, RARMS has expanded access to primary and emergency care across 33 communities delivering a 42.2 percent reduction in avoidable hospital transfers and saving more than $4 million annually.
RARMS delivers a value-based service model that not only addresses workforce needs, but works with our communities and stakeholders to target the causes of poor health and reduced access in rural and remote communities, enabling it to deliver superior solutions and outcomes. As a not-for-profit, we can provide an environment that supports our doctors to learn and thrive. That also means that RARMS can focus on the best solutions for government, communities and health services ensuring that we maximise the economic impact of our activities in rural and remote communities.
Our permanent and temporary GP recruitment capabilities, combined with our virtual GP solutions, enables RARMS to support vulnerable communities, hospitals and aged care facilities with a range of integrated workforce solutions.
