The COVID-19 pandemic has shined a spotlight on the benefits of Virtual Healthcare, but did you know this service isn’t just about social distancing?
Virtual Healthcare refers to ‘virtual’ visits between patients and health professionals via technologies such as video conferencing and telephone calls. Just like when you’re sitting in your GP’s office, these visits occur in real-time.
This service has been a lifeline for many patients in need for quite a while. Being held remotely means that patients can interact with their physicians and specialists anytime and from anywhere, receiving the care and attention they need when they need it. This is a vital service for so many residents of the West Moreton region who may not be able to easily travel for healthcare for any number of reasons.
Virtual healthcare also helps specialists monitor situations and even procedures from remote locations. Patients with chronic conditions such as diabetes and hypertension greatly benefit from this service, enabling their specialists to help them avoid rehospitalisation.
In short, Virtual Healthcare keeps people connected with their physicians and specialists come what way, contributing to successful healthcare outcomes come during the pandemic and beyond.
