21 Sep Telehealth At Ashford Cardiac Clinic
Medicare Australia has made available new item numbers for tele-health for patients in metropolitan Adelaide that were previously only available to rural patients. This means that some new consultations or reviews can be conducted remotely, without needing to come to the clinic. While this is currently a temporary measure during the current pandemic, it may be extended into the future. Currently, most new consultations are seen in the clinic and some reviews are being conducted as telehealth. If you are a new or existing patient, please advise staff at the clinic if you would like your consultation to be conducted by tele-health.
In addition, we continue to offer tele-health consultations to patients in rural areas outside of the Adelaide metropolitan area. If testing is required following the consultation, this will either be scheduled locally if available or in Adelaide at a convenient time, minimising the burden of travel. If you are a new or existing patient who lives in country South Australia, please advise staff at the clinic if you would like your consultation to be conducted by tele-health.
