What is telehealth?
Telehealth is an alternative way of delivering effective evidence-based Allied Health Services. In many ways, it’s just like seeing any other health provider face to face, but instead of driving to an office location, or catching public transport, your face-to-face appointment is virtual, through the use of digital technology. Where such technology is not available, some appointments can also be conducted over the phone.
With the recent advancements relating to the COVID-19 outbreak, telehealth has quickly grown to be the preferred method to support the continuation of servicing, while ensuring the health and safety of our clients, families and staff.
ORS are committed and highly experienced in delivering telehealth services; in fact, we have been delivering telehealth to Employee Assistance Program (EAP) customers across Australia for many years. We see telehealth as the future of NDIS service delivery, well beyond the current circumstances.
Why is telehealth so important?

- Are a convenient alternative to face-to-face
- Eliminate travel times and costs for people
