In June, an agreement between Queensland Health and the University of Queensland will make the interRAI AC available to all public hospitals in the state. The interRAI AC constitutes the core of a clinical decision support system developed by the University. It facilitates geriatric consultation, online consultation to support telemedicine, and ward based comprehensive geriatric assessment. This will be the largest implementation of the interRAI AC to date. The AC is also being implemented in Belgium and Italy, and is under careful consideration in many others.
