Telehealth

Telehealth allows health care providers to connect with patients and provide care through telephone or video consultations. Any device (phone, tablet or computer) can be used to have a telehealth consultation allowing patients to access care in the comfort of their home.

healthdirect Video Call

Our PHN provides complimentary access to healthdirect Video Call - a secure platform that allows health care providers (including GPs, allied health providers and residential aged care facilities) to offer their services via a video consultation.

Video Call provides a single consistent entry point on the service’s webpage for all patients (link to waiting room is emailed and sent via SMS), where they enter an online waiting area for their appointment.
