Why Virtual Health Connection?

Available on a web-enabled device, such as a desktop or mobile phone, the Virtual Health Connection service (VHC) is a comprehensive telehealth solution that connects healthcare providers with their patients through a high-quality and secure video platform. It also supports scheduling, booking and clinical coordination where required.

Traditionally, telehealth networks operate as siloed, incompatible systems. The VHC solves this challenge through a virtual healthcare system which allows individual organisations across Australia to connect securely and reliably.

Unlike some video conference platforms, the VHC is tailored to the healthcare sector therefore it integrates with existing healthcare systems, and offers features such as appointment scheduling engine to assist with scheduling appointments, and communication tools to securely share clinical documents for receiving second opinions from health professionals.

Key product benefits

Accessible patient care

Facilitate clinical consultations through enterprise-level end points or on any browser or mobile device, regardless of the patient’s location.

 

Tailored to the healthcare system

As the largest Australian-based software provider for healthcare providers, our VHC solution has been developed collaboratively with clinicians and providers to ensure it is fit-for-purpose, enables best practice care, and meets the evolving needs of the healthcare sector. 

Enterprise-grade solution

A central platform linking government, and non-government providers, and connectivity between jurisdictions to overcome the challenge of different networks having multiple systems, equipment, protocols, bandwidths and connection methods.

Testimonial 

“What has not been addressed previously is an effective way for cross jurisdictional Video Conferencing and Telehealth services to occur. Jurisdictions wishing to conference outside their own boundaries are forced to connect, test and debug communication with every other party of interest.” 
– NT Government Department of Health on Development of a Telehealth Connection Service
