As per the most recent federal budget announcement, the Australian Government are investing an additional $204.6 million to support continued access to universal telehealth for all Australians.

The healthcare industry is constantly evolving. More so than ever in the past year, where we saw a massive industry shift from in-person care to virtual care delivered via telehealth due to the worldwide pandemic. A shift that forced us to rely on a digital led society showing us that we are able to live in a blended digital and physical world.
The Australian federal budget announcement has been made! Telehealth services will be extended until 31st December 2021 with a further $204.6 million investment.
Statistics show that 44% of Aussies say they would switch GPs to one that offers video telehealth.
