Using technologies to deliver healthcare services
Telehealth services use information and communication technologies to deliver healthcare services and transmit health information.
This can include via telephone consultation, email or videoconferencing. 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.
It has the potential to provide patients with more convenient and efficient access to healthcare.
This guide focuses on telehealth video consultations covered under the MBS where a general practitioner (GP), practice nurse or Aboriginal health worker is physically present with the patient to provide patient-end services during a consultation with a specialist at another location.
