Telehealth Set Up
The code of conduct for a health profession is a key component of each National Board’s regulatory framework, desiged to protect the public and support the Health Practitioner. Telehealth does not replace face-to-face appointments, but supports them, so it is most suited for follow-up or review appointments. Telehealth set up meets the Australian Telehealth Standards, including: Patient Engagement, Video Conferencing, Digital Forms and Taking Payments Online.
Of course, there is a downside. There is a risk of fragmentation of care, sitting alongside a lack of comprehensive care. However, the downside can easily be averted, with good systems and processes using Telehealth.
