Telehealth is transforming the way Queensland Health cares for rural and remote patients, enabling them to attend appointments close to home. Our telehealth program:
- reduces the disruption and cost associated with travel and enables patients to stay close to their family and friends
- improves healthcare equity, giving rural patients access to the same specialist advice as patients living in metropolitan areas
- benefits rural clinicians by connecting them to more professional development opportunities and support from peers, including specialists from tertiary health centres.
