Medicinal Cannabis. Connecting Doctors and Patients.

Cannahealth is committed to connecting doctors and patients.

As such, we are building a database of doctors who are prepared to have a conversation, with their
patients, about the potential use of medicinal cannabis. As part of this service, our team can:

1. Refer patients to a doctor at a nearby clinic, or
2. Refer patients to a doctor that provides Telehealth consults

TELEHEALTH

Telehealth services use information and communication technologies (phone and web based video services) to deliver health services and transmit health information over both long and short distances. It is about transmitting voice, data, images and information rather than moving patients, health professionals or educators. It encompasses diagnosis, treatment, preventive (educational) and curative aspects of healthcare services.

Video-conferencing is one of the main ways in which Telehealth is improving access to healthcare services for patients who live in regional, rural and remote areas. Instead of having to travel to the nearest major city to see a specialist, an increasing number of patients are using video-conferencing. This facility might be offered by their local GP or another local healthcare venue.

 

*Depending on location of the patient, Medicare rebates may not be available for Telehealth consultations.
