Introducing healthdirect Video Call in your Aged Care Service
Video telehealth can improve access to health services for your residents. Thoughtful implementation will ensure that your facility gets the most benefit and it is worth spending some time planning how to integrate telehealth consultations into your service.
Video consultations can facilitate appointments with GPs, specialists and Allied Health professionals. It can be used for appointments with single health service providers or can include multiple parties in one call, co-ordinating care. Family members, interpreters and social workers can be included in appointments, even if the clinician is visiting the facility face-to-face.
