Victoria expands specialist telehealth provision for rural patients

The Victorian government has named the 15 successful projects that will share in $5 million in extra funding for telehealth links to metropolitan specialists for patients living in regional and rural parts of the state.

The Victorian Telehealth Specialist Clinic initiative funding was first announced last year as part of the Department of Health and Human Services's (DHHS) strategic review of telehealth. which also looked at how to enable health services to access Healthdirect Australia's WebRTC-based telehealth solution VideoCall.
