Visionflex is thrilled to announce its selection by the Hunter New England Primary Health Network (PHN) for their prestigious Game Changer Grant. This partnership aims to develop innovative telehealth tools to assist patients in the region suffering from chronic wounds. Chronic wounds, affecting approximately 430,000 Australians, pose a significant challenge in terms of effective management and treatment.

With the funding provided by this grant, Visionflex will create advanced tools designed to enhance wound management, empowering local carers and nurses to make more informed decisions regarding wound care and treatment plans. The collaboration between Visionflex and Hunter New England PHN marks a significant step forward in improving patient outcomes and healthcare services in the region.

Mike Harman, founder of Visionflex and Head of Product, expressed his enthusiasm about the project, stating, “We are excited to be working with the HNECCPHN team on this project and to making a real difference in health outcomes for so many patients living with chronic wounds around Australia. We would like to thank the Game Changer grant selection committee for their confidence in our team and our ability to deliver these cutting edge wound management tools. “

The project will be running trials in select aged care facilities and Aboriginal clinics within the Hunter New England region, ensuring comprehensive care and support for patients in need. Visionflex looks forward to contributing to the improvement of chronic wound management and enhancing the quality of life for affected individuals.
