    First Thursday Club

Australia sits on the cusp of a of a transformational change in the way that health care is provided in this country. A key feature of this transformation is the delivery of health care remotely through technology - we are entering the age of virtual care. Significant changes are happening right now.

Woolworths, our largest supermarket chain will soon not only be fresh food people - but also fresh medicine people. Woolies have recently announced a move into healthcare through its subsidiary, Healthylife, and its online portal.

The MBS telehealth items introduced on a temporary basis in response to the COVID 19 pandemic have now been made permanent.

This national shift to remote care via technology will change the risk profile of healthcare providers. Doctors and other health care professionals need to take additional steps to ensure that telehealth is provided safely, ethically and lawfully. The new Telehealth Guidelines published by the Medical Board which come into effect in September this year are designed to raise standards and protect patients. More will follow.

Join us for our next FTC session as BN’s Rob Samut discuss all of this and more.
