Lay summary
Nationally and internationally, health services are turning to telehealth delivery methods and requiring fast translation of in-person care to remote care. This is particularly important in a post-COVID19 era. Recent Australian data showed that telehealth numbers jumped from 240,000 in 2019 to 5.4 million just between January and April 2020. The Go Well Health (GWH) platform was developed to deliver remote health services: we will make use of this platform to deliver personalised digital care plans for people with traumatic brain injury to rehabilitate safely at home with limited in-person contact and hospital visits. The GWH is a cloud platform that healthcare teams use to strengthen patient engagement, educate, empower and support them to safely self-manage ( The proposed remote care platform solves a national problem but is also an important building block for a more sustainable health system in the future.
