What is telehealth?
Telehealth includes telephone or video online health consultations, much like a virtual clinic. The modern world of technology is booming with robotics on the horizon, smart appliances and uber air well under way. With internet access all over the world and throughout remote and rural Australia, telehealth is paving the way for better and more affordable access to health care.
Did you know that if you live in a rural area you can consult with a psychologist and some specialists by video? Traditionally we are used to going to the clinic and sitting in waiting rooms to see our practitioner in person. Now days if you live in a remote or rural area in Australia you can access so many more services using the internet and telephone.
What are the key benefits of telehealth?
Our naturopathy clinics in Sydney and Glen Innes offer remote and rural telehealth consultations via skype and telephone. The key benefits of telehealth consults include:
- They are cheaper! Yes that’s right, you heard me correctly, I said it. “Cheaper”. Skype and phone consults can be done with less clinic overheads allowing us to pass on the discount to the patient. This means more people can access high quality affordable holistic health care.
- Convenience – online bookings are available, online patient dispensary, no travel, no waiting, no parking, after hours available, enjoy your consultation from the comfort of your own home.
- Better access – Anyone, anywhere in Australia can access a naturopath!
Whether you live in Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth, Brisbane, Canberra, Darwin or in the middle of nowhere! You can access the highest quality personalised health care.
Our clinics work with your doctor to provide integrative care. You don’t have to choose alternative medicine, you can choose integrative medicine and enjoy the best of traditional and modern medicine. We write referral letters to ensure your whole health care team is in the loop.
