Telehealth is now available

Telehealth enables our exercise physiologists to deliver high quality healthcare and exercise advice online as an alternative to face to face consultations. This means everyone in the community can enhance their health and wellbeing in the comfort of their own home.

How can our healthcare team help? 

  • Injury rehabilitation and prevention
  • Treatment of chronic health conditions, like obesity, cardiovascular disease and cancer
  • Diabetes prevention & control
  • Arthritis, joint and back pain and stiffness
  • Safe, client-centred assessment for those looking to improve health and well-being
  • Research has shown that when Telehealth is delivered by a health care professional, patients can gain benefits equal to that achieved through face-to-face treatment.

Are Telehealth services rebatable?

Yes!

Telehealth can be fully or partly funded through compensable schemes such as:

  • Medicare
  • Worksafe/WorkCover
  • DVA card holders
  • Motor Vehicle Accident commissions
  • National Disability Insurance Scheme
  • Some Private Health providers

Sarah – member of Ascot Vale commenced Telehealth recently:

“I was concerned about the recent temporary closure of my local leisure centre. With the introduction of the telehealth service, I have been able to continue with my much-needed sessions to maintain and progress my rehabilitation program. I’ve found the online program convenient and easy to use, especially because my Exercise Physiologist and I can find a mutually suitable time and I can access the program from the comfort of my own home. The two-way video also helps with personalised feedback and demonstrations”
