Waikato trialling Virtual DHB for free out of hours doctor consults

Waikato District Health Board is running a six-month trial extending its Virtual DHB initiative to offer a free out of hours doctor service, in which registered patients can message a doctor and set up a video consultation in the evening or on the weekend.

The trial is using technology from US firm HealthTap, which allows patients to connect to their hospital clinician for text or video consultations through a website or the HealthTap app on their smartphone or tablet.
