WHAT IS TELEMEDICINE?
Telemedicine simply means you, the patient, accessing clinical services from a qualified doctor using electronic communications and software, without actually visiting the doctor yourself in person. Telemedicine allows health care professionals to evaluate, diagnose and treat patients without a face-to face meeting. Telemedicine technology is now frequently used for general medical consultations, follow-up visits, management of chronic conditions, medication management, specialist consultations and a host of other clinical services that can be provided remotely via secure video and audio.
Where it was once only available in limited circumstances from a few practitioners, telemedicine has now evolved and become a widely-accepted mainstream way for you to access medical and health care. Using our telemedicine platform, you can now consult an Australian Medical Board-certified doctor/GP in the comfort of our own home or office. Of course a face-to-face consultation with your regular GP is the ideal consultation, however a consultation with National Telemedicine Doctors is an effective and convenient alterative, when a face-to-face consultation is not possible. During your consultation your National Telemedicine Doctor will advise you if an in-person visit to a medical practitioner is required.
BENEFITS OF TELEMEDICINE
An online consultation with National Telemedicine Doctors as an alternative to a face-to-face visit with a doctor has many benefits, including:
Please remember that consultations provided by National Telemedicine Doctors are not suitable in the case of medical emergencies requiring urgent treatment. In the case of emergencies, please contact your local emergency services immediately.
