    How others are using video call

    See how healthdirect Video Call is being used today by health organisations

    Healthdirect Video call is currently being used by more than 460 organisations with over 8000 clinics. Some organisations have just one clinic and other larger organisations have many clinics, one for each of their specialty areas. Each clinic has its own waiting area where patients arrive when they start a video call and clinicians can easily join the call. The platform is flexible, intuitive and easy for patients and clinicians to access. Video Call is a great option for patients living in remote and rural areas, or for those with limited mobility who cannot easily travel to see their doctor. Video telehealth is now embedded into the day to day workflows of many health organisations to help facilitate better health outcomes.
