The Barwon South West Telehealth Program has been scaling use of a range of telehealth modes of access over the past 5 years, including video for specialist consultations and emergency care, and remote patient monitoring for chronic conditions.
As we look to the future, and increasing the provision safe, quality care into the home and community settings, how do we bring the pieces of the digital health landscape together to provide holistic services for consumers? This session will explore the how telehealth access has been designed, scaled, adapted and combined, including:
- Opportunities to combine modes of telehealth access (e.g. remote monitoring and video) to enable more comprehensive care or support
- The value of consistent approaches to telehealth access for consumers across a region
- Potential impacts on regional health service design, and collaboration between health care providers
