30pc of GPs use telehealth but 65pc would like to: RACGP survey

A survey of more than a thousand GPs on their attitudes towards the use of technology in general practice has found that the majority are optimistic about technology's ability to improve productivity and care coordination, but numerous barriers remain, including funding, patient confidentiality and a lack of integration with other systems.

For example, the survey found that just three in 10 GPs use telehealth, mainly for conducting video consults with other healthcare practitioners or for training, but if funding was available, 65 per cent would be likely to use telehealth services in the next three years.
