Regulation in the field of telehealth has undergone recent reform. This is primarily because of concerns raised about the use of asynchronous telehealth where there is no real-time interaction with patients. There are certainly a range of benefits of telehealth, but it may not always be appropriate. In this important session we will discuss the full range of issues that telehealth can encapsulate, including:
The updated Medical Board of Australia "Guidelines for telehealth consultations with patients”.
What circumstances may or may not be covered by MIPS during telehealth consultations including overseas and interstate telehealth.
Clinical discretion about when telehealth should be used.
This webinar will offer valuable information and practical strategies to enhance your understanding of the regulatory landscape and mitigate potential risks during telehealth practice.
Understand recent regulatory telehealth changes.
Assess impacts on practice and indemnity.
Implement effective telehealth practice systems.
