Telehealth video consultations in general practice

Speciality Classification
General Practice ( GP ) / Family Medicine

On-demand recorded 24 Sep 2019

Telehealth is becoming more popular as a mode of healthcare delivery due to the benefits it provides to both patients and practitioners, particularly those in rural and remote areas, and has the potential to provide patients with more convenient and efficient access to healthcare.

This webinar outlines the clinical, administrative and technical considerations for this mode of healthcare delivery, to support GPs and other eligible practitioners in providing safe and effective video consultations.

Whilst Telehealth is broad, this webinar focuses on video consultations covered under the MBS where a GP is physically present with the patient to provide patient-end services during a consultation with a specialist at another location.

This event is part of Practice essentials webinar series. Events in this series are:

  • Phone and video consultations: a how-to presentation
  • Using personal mobile devices for clinical photos in general practice
  • My Health Record – an update webinar
  • Social media and the use of apps in general practice
