Phone and video consultations: a how-to presentation
The content is current at the time of filming.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Australian Government have introduced new Medicare Benefits Schedule (MBS) item numbers to allow GPs to provide telehealth consultations to their patients.
This presentation provides an overview of the new items and how to implement telehealth into your practice. We discuss practicalities of delivering a consultation over the phone or video, hardware and software requirements, and the steps to take to ensure your practice has a smooth transition into telehealth.
