WHAT IS TELEHEALTH?
Our Technology Partners
Telehealth is one of the many ways we will be continuing to deliver Exercise Physiology services. Telehealth uses telecommunication through various technologies in the form of a video or audio conversation. This enables us to deliver exercise therapy, education and advice whilst you remain safe in the comfort of your home. This is a service that has been utilised by many different health professionals around Australia to access remote communities and has been shown to be effective when face-to face consultations are not possible. To get the most out of your Telehealth sessions we also give all of our clients free access 24/7 to start of the art Exercise software "Physitrack".
HOW TO ACCESS BULK-BILLED SESSIONS?
Contact Us Today to Find your Eligibility
The Australian Government has put means in place to ensure the Australian population can stay fit and healthy during these tough times. Those who need the support most may be able to access Telehealth sessions with an Accredited Exercise Physiologist (AEP), with no out of pocket cost. This is to ensure this population can still exercise safely and effectively whilst keeping their risk of infection as low as possible. Who is eligible? To access a bulk billed telehealth session with an AEP you will need a referral from a GP after having a care plan. If you have already had a care plan done this year, you are able to use any referrals you haven't already used for a Telehealth session. To be eligible to receive a care plan you must have a chronic medical condition, be of Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander Descent or hold a DVA white or gold card. If you're unsure of your eligibility you will need to speak to your GP. In addition to your AEP session, your GP may also be able to offer Telehealth sessions to discuss or complete your care plan.
WHAT IS PHYSITRACK?
Physitrack is an online platform you can remotely access from your phone, tablet or computer. After your initial consultation your Exercise Physiologist will prescribe you a series of exercises tailored to the information collected in the assessment. These exercises will be delivered to you as individual videos with auditory and written instructions on how to complete each exercise as it is intended. The application will also show you the intensity (how heavy) and volume (how much or how long) for each of these exercises. In addition to this, you will be able to send messages directly to your Exercise Physiologist about any questions or concerns you may have. This application enables us to continue providing the best possible care to all of our clients without face to face contact.
