SVH Telehealth Services
Telehealth makes essential specialist healthcare services easier to access. When you live in a rural or remote area, it can be difficult to access specialist healthcare services. Often, you need to travel long distances to see specialists – which can also result in additional accommodation costs, adding to the stress of travelling when you’re unwell.
Telehealth helps people living in rural and remote areas to access specialist services with greater ease and reduced waiting times. In some cases, you can see a specialist sooner via a Telehealth consultation.
Telehealth services can include any of the following:
•Medical consultations via audio or video conferencing
•Remote control and monitoring of vital signs
•Continuing medical education
