A new online platform for health care professionals to connect with their colleagues across Australia is coming online soon, with the first service in the new platform expected to launch in 2020.
The platform is designed to help health professionals in the community find and connect with other health professionals who work in their communities, including nurses, doctors and others, and connect them with other staff.
The Health Career Connection Platform (HCCP) will be developed by a consortium of community and non-government organisations including the Australian Human Rights Commission (AHRC), Australian Medical Association (AMA), and the Commonwealth of Australia.
It will be available on the Health Care Portal (HCP) and the Health Career Portal (HCP), respectively.
The HCCP will connect with about 20 health professionals, including nurse practitioners, nurses, social workers, nurse-midwives, primary care doctors, nurses and midwives, social work, dental assistants and pharmacists.
The service is aimed at connecting people to health professionals across the country, but there are no plans for it to be used to connect people with health services in other parts of the country.
“We are committed to delivering this innovative, highly effective and inclusive health workforce engagement tool to deliver a truly holistic and holistic experience for all Australians,” Mr Andrews said.
“The Health Care Professionals Network will help provide the tools to connect and collaborate across the entire health care workforce and the community.”
The HCP will include a suite of tools that can be used for the health professionals’ roles, including job-specific tools, and will enable them to collaborate with other community health professionals.
“This new platform will enable more people to be part of the community health workforce,” Mr Anderson said.
