YOUR TELEHEALTH CARE TEAM
WHAT IS TELEHEALTH?
Telehealth is a new way of delivering your allied health service without you needing to attend our clinic. It is as simple as downloading an app on your smartphone. Your consultation is conducted over a secure video channel – you can see your therapist, and they can see you. Your therapist can assess your range of movement, give and watch you perform your exercises and offer advice and suggestions – just as they would in the clinic. Any exercise program that your therapist creates for you is sent directly to your phone and you can message your therapist directly if you have any questions.
WHY WOULD I NEED A TELEHEALTH CONSULT?
Imagine if you are travelling and incur an injury. You may not speak the language where you are, it might be quite overwhelming to access a physiotherapist or health services may not be adequate. Maybe you have just had surgery or be suffering from a chronic illness and are unable to make it to the clinic, but you need advice or support on your rehabilitation program. You can now make a Telehealth appointment with one of our team and get advice and support.
WHERE DO I START?
If you would like a Telehealth consultation with our physiotherapist or exercise physiologist, please message us at firstname.lastname@example.org with some timeframes for contact that are within our opening hours. We will get back to you ASAP with instructions.
Because Telehealth is a new and innovative service, private health insurers are not yet offering rebates on Telehealth services, nor is it covered under a Medicare Team Care Arrangement.
