Virtual care and telehealth in action
As restrictions are gradually eased and the world emerges from COVID-19, the second edition of #FromTheFrontlines virtual conference focuses on what telehealth and virtual care looks like in a post-pandemic world.
Given how effective telehealth has been in responding to COVID-19, will virtual-first access for all health professionals and consumers become the norm? What do we need to do to keep the momentum going and build an effective telehealth system that gives Australians faster access to the urgent healthcare they need?
#FromTheFrontlines brings you firsthand accounts from global innovators developing health technology at pace and the health superstars who are supporting the community and helping build resilience after a pandemic. We will also hear from the various associations and bodies working together to promote telehealth as business-as-usual even after the pandemic and learn from the global frontline including the US, UK, Israel and Singapore.
This is the Institute’s second virtual conference and follows on from the success of From the Frontlines: A COVID-19 special event.
