Posts about Video Telehealth:
As much of the nation faces tougher COVID-19 restrictions, telehealth uptake is once again soaring. Video consultations allow for continuity of care, building rapport, improving efficiencies, reducing costs and keeping the community safe.
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. This is a great move by the Government as video telehealth is a staple for many patients and practitioners prior, during and post the pandemic.
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.
