The Effective and Sustainable Adoption of Virtual Health Care

As part of the COVID-19 response, the Medicare Benefits Schedule (MBS) was extended to support the wide-scale provision of health care by telehealth, with subsequent amendments to restrict arrangements in general practice to providers who have an existing and continuous relationship with the patient. Private health insurers also agreed to provide benefits for teleconsultations. With Australians more open to using technology in health care, this has led to optimism across the sector that there will be a willingness to embrace these technologies in care to achieve more long-term health care reform. This position paper explores six key areas that will be required for effective and sustainable implementation of virtual health care.
