MedAdvisor launches telehealth services

MedAdvisor is extending its GP Link technology to enable patients to undertake telehealth consultations with their GP or one of MedAdvisor’s On-Demand GPs.

The move will complete MedAdvisor’s medication management loop by allowing patients to conduct every part of the process remotely, where available. MedAdvisor expects to have these additional telehealth services online in April.

“The ability for patients to access these services without leaving home has significant benefits in not having to attend the practice, both through social distancing and allowing the GP and pharmacist to manage their dramatically increased workflow,” MedAdvisor CEO Robert Read said.

According to Mr Read, telehealth is gaining popularity globally as the next generation of medication management.

“The current pandemic has meant that governments are fast-tracking their adoption of these services and MedAdvisor is perfectly placed to provide this crucial service at scale. MedAdvisor has been developing this functionality over a number of years and has now fast-tracked to launch the service imminently to help protect our patients and assist our medical practitioners to maintain our world-class health services,” Mr Read said.
