Telehealth enables you to receive quality care closer to home and is delivered via technology such as computers and telephones.
It involves the same level of diagnosis, treatment, and prevention aspects that you’d receive with face-to-face consultations and it improves access to healthcare by reducing the need to travel for specialist advice.
While telehealth has existed in Australia for some time, our health clinics have recently introduced this services across our allied health clinics..
