How we can help your patients

We offer accelerated access to a wide variety of leading Australian specialists via video consultation. There are obvious benefits for patients in rural or remote areas and those in urban areas where mobility or other issues make it difficult to see a specialist in person. In addition, if your patient has an existing relationship with a specialist who does not currently offer video consultation, we can approach that doctor to provide the use of our secure video platform at no cost to them. And if you want to utilise (or just trial) video consultation with your patients (for example, nursing home patients or those with impaired mobility), we can offer the same service to you free of charge. Well even take care of the billing for you.

Dual consultation with GPs, case workers, translators or family members

We see dual consultation as the gold standard for enhancing the quality of patient care and communication between colleagues. This model of care involves the GP and the consulting specialist participating in a simultaneous video consultation with the patient, with a real-time discussion between the three parties. The specialist benefits from your in-depth knowledge of the patient while you can ask questions and discuss management options. Of course, we also offer conventional 2-way consultation between specialist and patient if you cannot attend.

Whats involved?

You can access our video platform with any internet-connected device with a camera and microphone. Your patient can either be in your surgery or at their home, workplace or hotel


Medicare rebates apply to eligible patients. A gap payment will also apply; this varies between specialists between $75-350. We can bill DVA and WorkCover directly, at no cost to patients.
