In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Australian Government have introduced new Medicare Benefits Schedule (MBS) item numbers to allow GPs to provide telehealth consultations to their patients.

This presentation provides an overview of the new items and how to implement telehealth into your practice. We discuss practicalities of delivering a consultation over the phone or video, hardware and software requirements, and the steps to take to ensure your practice has a smooth transition into telehealth.

The Royal Australian College of General Practitioners acknowledges Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the Traditional Custodians of the land and sea in which we live and work, we recognise their continuing connection to land, sea and culture and pay our respects to Elders past, present and future.
