Telehealth can have a range of definitions but it broadly refers to the use of technology to communicate with, and deliver health services to, consumers without the need for face-to-face contact with a health professional. This document focuses on a more limited definition of telehealth, based on current Medicare funding arrangements, where video consultation is the preferred substitute for face-to-face consultations. In a video consultation, the consumer and health professional are connecting from two different locations via real-time audio-visual communication.
