Telehealth is the delivery of healthcare virtually via a PC or mobile device. This allows patients to be seen by their healthcare practitioner in the comfort of their home/ aged care facility/ local general practice.
EMPHN is supporting the roll out of Healthdirect’s ‘video call’ trial during COVID-19. For more information and resources on using telehealth and Healthdirect, visit our COVID-19 page.
