Spotlight on Jindabyne Medical Practice's paediatric specialist telehealth hub
In 2018, Jindabyne Medical Practice implemented a paediatric specialist telehealth hub to facilitate more flexible and responsive access to specialist care for their patients. During the six-month trial implementation, the practice was able to upgrade its telehealth facilities and upskill staff in privacy and protocol systems.
Local promotion across internal and external channels resulted in a significant increase in telehealth paediatric consultation with specialists in different geographic locations - mainly Canberra, Sydney and Bega. The practice has since continued with the service and are looking to establish telehealth arrangements with specialists of other disciplines.
