Benefits of Telehealth Appointments

Telehealth is necessary to GPs during a pandemic to ensure all patients have continued access to quality healthcare without having to attend a clinic in person for such things as vaccinations, wound treatments, etc. Reducing the number of patients at the clinic reduces the risk for patients and clinic staff and meets social distancing requirements during pandemic periods.

Further benefits include:

  • Keeping vulnerable patients safe;
  • Continuous patient contact;
  • Minimising PPE use;
  • Helps patients with mobility issues;
  • Efficient routing health care;
  • Reduced patient costs;
  • Enhanced chronic disease management.
