Virtual Event: Improving Remote and Telehealth Services

Improving access to care and reach with the latest Telehealth technologies

Tuesday 9 March 2021
11:00 AM - 1:10 PM AEDT

Agenda Overview

Telehealth services have been on rise for several years now. Since March 2020 telehealth services have skyrocketed and new temporary MBS telehealth items have been made available to help reduce the risk of community transmission of coronavirus (COVID-19) and provide protection for patients and health care providers.

Virtual care offers an unparalleled opportunity to deliver real change addressing the challenges of healthcare over the next decade. It has the power to transform every health and social care sector and the way services are delivered. Telehealth also improves access to health services for people in rural and remote areas.

While telemedicine promises to grow rapidly over the next decade and has clear benefits, it still poses some technical and practical problems for healthcare providers. To make the most of telehealth and to overcome some of the challenges, Public Sector Network is running the complimentary Improving Remote and Telehealth Services Virtual Event.
