Telehealth services for your safety and convenience
Telehealth is the use of information and communication technologies to receive therapy services in the comfort of your own home. Telehealth is similar to other video communication platforms like Face Time or Skype, and means that you can see and hear the other person in real time. Telehealth can include a range of activities including video calls, voice calls, emails, sharing of documents and pictures, use of Youtube or other electronic games or media.
Benefits of Telehealth
- No need to travel
- Greater access to skilled therapists for people living in remote areas
Evidence suggests that there are similar outcomes between Telehealth and in-person Allied Health service delivery. The important part of your service is the quality of the intervention and the skills of your therapist. Telehealth simply provides an alternative mode of service delivery.
