HOW HEALTHNOW WORKS

HEALTHNOW IS THERE WHEN YOU NEED HELP

It’s late at night and your GP is closed

Your closest GP is just too far away

You’re not sure how to access health services in Western Australia

SEEING EYE TO EYE

The best tool in a doctor’s bag is often a well asked question. While there are many conditions best suited to a face to face consultation, our HealthCare doctors have undertaken additional training in telemedicine to ask the best questions to get the right answers to help you. You may also be asked to send in an image to aid your consultation. You can also have your consultation via video conference if you have the right equipment.


HOW IS TELSTRA INVOLVED

In 2013 Telstra Health was formed with the belief that technology can create a better connected healthcare system and make healthcare easier for patients and providers.

We’re making healthcare more accessible, at lower cost, to deliver better health outcomes. HealthNow was launched in July 2014 in Australia’s first purpose built telemedicine centre, hiring experienced Australian based doctors to provide 24/7 care.
