Telehealth Information For Staff

BCH have access to the HealthDirect portal for conducting telehealth with patients. 

Video Call has been developed by Healthdirect Australia to make it easy for healthcare providers to offer their services via video consultation. Consumers can connect with the relevant BCH clinician from their home, from work, or from wherever is most convenient, using everyday devices – smartphone, tablet or desktop computer.

A number of virtual clinics have been set up to facillitate telehealth across a range of disciplines. Clinicians will be set up with accounts to process video calls in their respective clinics. Organisational support will be provisioned with generic accounts that can see waiting callers across clinics to facilitate MasterCare admissions.
