RDN and telehealth

In recent years, telehealth has assisted remote, rural and regional communities to access better healthcare services in a timelier fashion. This is an exciting development in providing health services and information over distance, allowing people outside of metropolitan areas to access knowledge and services previously inaccessible unless they travelled, usually at great cost and inconvenience. As an organisation striving for equity in healthcare access, RDN supports telehealth and the opportunities it offers.

Since the Medical Specialist Outreach Assistance Program (MSOAP) Telehealth Trial 2010, telehealth has become an element of RDN’s service delivery. Several Outreach services across the Medical Outreach Indigenous Chronic Disease Program (MOICDP) and Rural Health Outreach Fund (RHOF) programs being delivered via telehealth consultation.
