What are online medical consultations?
Online medical consultations connect patients with healthcare professionals via their phone or computer. Using video chat, you can discuss your health concerns with a fully qualified and accredited Australian doctor, much as you would in a traditional face to face setting.
An online check-up allows you to access healthcare quickly, with less hassle for everyone involved. It’s simply a matter of downloading an app or visiting the relevant website, creating an account and requesting a consultation.
What are the benefits of online medical consultations?
This convenient option comes with a host of benefits designed around the needs of our modern lifestyles. Here are some of the advantages:
With Instant Consult, you can speak to a qualified online doctor from home, at work or when you’re on the go. Even better, most people connect with the first available doctor within 15 minutes of requesting a consult, giving you healthcare on your schedule – perfect when you just can’t afford to take hours out of your day.
Instant Consult is designed for patients seeking more than just a quick doctor consultation. It offers a premium standard of healthcare, giving you access to online prescriptions, specialist referrals, and pathology and radiology requests.
The AHPRA-accredited doctors at Instant Consult take their time to understand your concerns and get a full patient history. This means you will enjoy a healthcare experience that is not only efficient but also customised to your needs.
Health concerns don’t stick to a 9-5 schedule. Thankfully the online doctors at Instant Consult are available from 6am to midnight AEST, seven days a week, including public holidays. This flexibility gives you peace of mind, knowing you can get medical advice, specialist referrals or online scripts when you need it most.
Privacy and security
You can rest assured that your medical information will be treated with the utmost care and security. All communications take place over fully encrypted servers to ensure that every consultation is private and secure. You can also request online scripts and medical certificates online through Instant Consult. These records are available for you whenever you need them and will stay securely in your inbox until you decide to delete them.
Living far from a clinic or having mobility issues can limit access to care, but online consultations break down these barriers by delivering healthcare to all Australians, including those in rural, remote or underserved communities.
