How Video Telehealth created Flexibility for our Practice and Patients
Psychiatrist Dr. Oleh Kay and Clinical Psychologist and Neuropsychologist Dr. Marjorie Collins are the owners of PsychPlace in Scarborough Western Australia. The couple took up telehealth at the beginning of the pandemic and even though they had no prior experience, they quickly became adept at managing the telehealth processes. Some of their patients were traveling over 1800 km to see them, so offering video consultations was a welcome addition to their practice. Not only could they continue offering healthcare services safely, but they also drastically reduced travel time for many patients.
I moved to Hamilton Island with my Online Practice!
Kathy Matheson, Psychologist and Founder of Karepsych, is somewhat of a telehealth pioneer. She had been experimenting with video consultations for a few years before the pandemic, particularly for clients who had to travel and move around for work.

Enhancing Diabetes Care for People with Intellectual Disability
Jayne Lehmann is a Registered Nurse, Credentialled Diabetes Educator, and Director of EdHealth Australia. Her story is half personal, half business.

Jayne has since used her skills and personal experience to develop online training modules to help disability support workers learn how to administer insulin and care for patients with diabetes.
