Northern DHBs see good uptake during lockdown for outpatients telehealth

The four northern region DHBs are reporting good uptake by patients of appointments offered by video conference and telephone, with thousands of appointments going ahead that normally would have been cancelled during the COVID-19 lockdown.

The DHBs are using a variety of technologies for virtual appointments, including Facebook Live sessions for expectant parents and wide use of the DHB's Zoom telehealth system, which they began rolling out in 2018.
