T10

PROFILE »TeleConsult is a new service that enables patients to consult directly with their own medical professionals via a platform that automatically bills the patient while protecting the privacy of each party’s phone information. TeleConsult can be used to triage patients, providing out of hours advice, providing follow repeat prescriptions and giving test results. TeleConsult is not intended to replace to face-to-face (F2F) consultations but rather is designed to enable the doctor to provide an additional level of care. TeleConsult was developed by a medical practitioner from his own experiences as a patient and as a doctor. He recognised that patients spend much time travelling and waiting to see doctors – not necessary if F2F not needed. Patients can register using a mobile app or the Web. They are shown the doctor’s fee (chosen by the doctor) before any consultation. In many instances the cost of a TeleConsult will be less than the gap payment for patients who are not bulk billed. Consultations are recorded for documentation and both patients and doctors can upload files to each other. Doctors can dictate letters or instructions after a TeleConsult. The cost of this service, based on consultation duration, is not covered by Medicare.
