Experience from Pitchfest 2019 and 1 year on - Telecare - Improving non-GP specialist access (ON-DEMAND: 12mins)

Presentation Description

Since pitching at Pitchfest GP19, Telecare has grown rapidly, serving over 200 GP clinics and their patients nationwide. We’re serving GPs and patients from all 8 states and territories, from Cocos Islands in the West, to Norfolk Island in the East. 1 year on, we see almost 500 patients per month, with 50 specialists and allied health providers across 27 specialties, whilst maintaining median wait times of 1-2 weeks.

Focusing on collaborative care, most of our telehealth consultations are facilitated by the treating GP (or practice nurse), enhancing patient care compared with traditional models of care.
