Introducing Telehealth

Get the services you want in a new, convenient and safe way 

Whether you are new to Vision Australia or an existing client, there’s a new and safe way for us to deliver services to you. Telehealth uses technology to conduct your appointments with a Vision Australia service provider. 

What’s so good about telehealth?

Telehealth is a great way for you to start receiving or continue to the receive services you want. The benefits of telehealth include:

  • Easy and convenient access to services in your own home, so there is no need for you to travel
  • Safe for you and the Vision Australia service provider
  • You can invite your family or friends to be involved in a session, as multiple people can be connected at one time in different locations
  • Lower costs - if you have a NDIS package you will only be charged for the service, there are no travel costs.

What technology can be used?

A telehealth session may use one or more forms of technology during an appointment. This may include: 

  • Video conferencing via Zoom platform
  • Telephone based appointments
  • Use of email/SMS 
  • Combination of the above

Free help to get you set up

Zoom is the platform that Vision Australia uses for video conferencing. It is an accessible system that allows a confidential video conferencing call to be held with you and other people you may want to join the session. 

Our AT Help Desk is ready to assist you to set up all the technology you need to access to telehealth services. The AT Help Desk is a free service available to all our clients.

Will I be charged for telehealth services?

Telehealth services will attract a fee just like a face to face service would. The fees vary depending on what funding you have. Speak to us to find out more.
