In this webinar, we will explore examples of telehealth practices in Australia and examine both their advantages and disadvantages. We will also discuss the current research on digital health systems and how this has the potential to revolutionise the health sector.
Dr Stephen Vaughn, Medical Oncologist and Haematologist, will share his insights having had extensive experience implementing and running telehealth platforms in remote locations.
Dr John Zelcer, Adjunct Professor, at Swinburne University of Technology, will discuss best practice through his work as a consultant on many telehealth projects.
Associate Professor Neil Thomas, Deputy Director of the Centre for Mental Health at Swinburne University of Technology, will discuss COVID-19's impact on the rapid adoption of telehealth in face-to-face mental health services, its impact on mental health needs, and the challenges and opportunities in the rapid virtualisation of mental health care.
Professor Nilmini Wickramasinghe, Deputy Director of the Iverson Health Innovation Research Institute at Swinburne University of Technology, will explore telemedicine from various stakeholder perspectives. She will compare and contrast planned telehealth solutions versus rapid telehealth solutions as experienced in the COVID-19 environment and examine hybrid telehealth environments post COVID-19 - what should be continued and improved and what should be removed.
