Telehealth consultations deliver continued and quality care to aged care residents.
Telehealth consultations allow elderly or disabled patients to connect with specialist medical services from the comfort of their residence, while being supported by a familiar care provider or family member.
Using telehealth technology, a health practitioner can monitor a patient’s health metrics, and observe the healing process of injuries and skin conditions, remotely from their clinic.
Using cutting-edge technology, Visionflex’s telehealth devices capture high-quality images, video, and consistent patient vitals data. This means improved diagnostic accuracy, earlier intervention, and better health outcomes.
Benefits for patients and providers
Aged care residents benefit by receiving continued care from their regular GP and have the ability of including family members in the consultation.
Aged care providers and staff benefit by being able to call for assistance, receive faster support and potentially reduce the need for patient transfer and hospital visits.
Telehealth is ideally placed to support patients suffering from dementia, diabetes, mental health conditions and more.
