Attending your Telehealth Online Consultation

You can now have a telehealth consultation with one of our women's health GPs online via a video call. All you need is an internet connection, suitable browser, and a compatible smartphone, tablet or computer.

Video calling is as convenient as a phone call, with the added value of face-to-face communication. It will save you time, and brings your care closer to home.

We can also consult with you by telephone if necessary, but our preferred telehealth method is via video call.

Where do I go to attend my appointment?

 

We'll send you an email and/or SMS with instructions, including a link to our online waiting room when you complete your booking.

Instead of travelling to your appointment, you enter the clinic’s waiting area online. We are notified when you arrive, and your clinician will join you when ready.

 

There is nothing to download and no need to create an account. No information you enter is stored.

What do I need to make a video call?

 

  1. A computer, tablet or smart phone.
     

  2. A good connection to the internet. If you can watch a video online (e.g. YouTube) you can make a video call
     

  3. A private, well-lit area where you will not be disturbed during the consultation
     

  4. A web browser
     

  5. Web-camera, speakers and microphone (usually already built into laptops or mobile devices)

On a Video Call

Video Calls on our HotDoc platform are secure and your privacy is absolutely protected. You have your own private video room (just like a cosulting room in our clinic) and only authorised clinicians can enter.

How much internet data will you use?

​You don’t use any data while waiting for a clinician to join you.

 

A video consultation uses less than half of the data you would use while watching a YouTube video in High Definition (similar to Skype or FaceTime).

 

Data use is less on lower-speed internet connections, or if you’re using a less powerful computer, tablet, or smartphone.

 

These factors can also reduce the overall quality of the call.

 

Data use increases when there are more than two participants in the call.

If you can, connect to a home or work Wi=Fi network to avoid using your mobile data allowance

Privacy & My Health Record

We take your privacy very, very seriously. There would be no circumstances when we would share your data with anyone else unless you gave us permission to do so.

We do participate in the e-Health initiative with the Australian government which means that if you have a My Health Record, we will be happy to upload an event summary into your record should you require us to do so.

 

However, we will not upload a shared health summary or an event summary into My Health Record without your request to do so.

We do not use cloud-based computing systems for our medical records and we have a secure server which is protected with the highest level of security to hold our clinical information system.
