Telehealth for Specialists

26 May 2020 at 6:30 PM to 7:30 PM
North Western Melbourne Primary Health Network

The Primary Health Network have partnered with Katrina Otto, one of Australia’s most experienced Digital Health and medical software trainers to provide an interactive session on using telehealth through COVID-19.

Amidst the uncertainty of COVID-19, a smooth transition to telehealth offers an unparalleled opportunity to continuously deliver value to patients, whilst overcoming and addressing the challenges of our current healthcare system.

With a growing need to connect and integrate our healthcare system across digital platforms, complications such as COVID-19 has forced many in the healthcare sector to review their modus operandi. In response to this review, many specialists and specialist practices have been forced into bringing on solutions that they do not yet understand and/or do not know how to operate within the workflows of their context.

Looking beyond COVID-19, we must recognise that the healthcare landscape will not be the same again.

Topics include:

  • understanding technology requirements for effective telehealth
  • considering practicalities of consent, clinical documentation in a telehealth consultation
  • tips from experienced telehealth practitioners
  • developing an awareness of electronic transfer of prescriptions
