Telehealth

It is important that all Western Australians have equal access to healthcare, regardless of where they live and the services provided in their local area.

Telehealth assists this by providing a secure video link between patients and clinicians, educators and other healthcare professionals. Telehealth is 'the use of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) applications to provide health and long-term care services over a distance". The main ICT technology used at King Edward Memorial Hospital is videoconferencing as it is easily accessible and user friendly.

The benefits of Telehealth appointments include:

  • less time away from home
  • saves money on repeated trips to Perth
  • reduces the stress and inconvenience of travel
  • less time off work
  • no charge for public patients
  • ability for family members or carers to attend video consult. 

Speak with your clinician to see if you can have your appointment via Telehealth.

More information is available on the Healthy WA website (external site).
