RCH conducting almost 70pc of outpatients clinics by telehealth

Melbourne's Royal Children’s Hospital is now delivering almost 70 per cent of its specialist clinic appointments by telehealth, with the average of 1200 face-to-face appointments per day dropping to 250 during the coronavirus pandemic.

RCH, which uses Healthdirect Australia's Video Call service for video conferencing, has been providing telehealth services to children living in rural and regional Victoria for more than eight years.
