What is Telehealth?
Telehealth is the use of technology to allow patients to connect with their Health Professionals, such as Physiotherapists without physically meeting. Appointments can either be over the telephone or via video conferencing platforms. Here at Barrington Health Physiotherapy, we most frequently use Gensolve or Zoom for our telehealth video appointments.
Telehealth is a great option if you are feeling unwell and are unable to come into the clinic, or if getting into the clinic is difficult for you. This means you can still get advice and education from your Physiotherapist from the comfort of your own home.
The benefits of Telehealth
- We can help you to effectively manage your injury without you even having to come into the clinic
- We can assess and manage new or existing injuries via telehealth
- We can lodge an ACC claim for you if your new injury meets the necessary criteria
- Convenient appointment times and no travel time required
What appointments can be held via telehealth?
All ACC and Private appointments, both new and follow up appointments can be held via telehealth.
