ORH’s DCT has been operating successfully in the Sydney and Newcastle Control Rooms for a year and a half. It is currently being enhanced to provide a number of new features including remote viewing of the live DCT display by Operational Commanders and access to previous historical profiles of cover (eg, to assist in retrospective audit). Based on the experience of DCT use during the NSW bushfires in the summer of 2013/14, ‘spate condition’ parameters will now drive the DCT display when appliance availability falls to low levels.
ORH has been commissioned by NSW Health to undertake a capacity review of NEPT across the metropolitan areas of the State. The booking of NEPT was centralised during 2014, centrally allocating resources previously provided by Local Health Districts and the Ambulance Service. ORH is undertaking an analysis of the current service profile and using simulation modelling techniques to identify optimal resource deployments to meet varying NEPT demand profiles effectively and efficiently.
