How it works

Below is an overview of how the service works. It can be tailored to specifically address your organisation's requirements.

  1. Call InjuryNET
    Manager calls 1300 number to request a telemedicine consultation.
  2. Source appointment
    InjuryNET coordinates referral to a telemedicine doctor which may include:
    • Examination
    • Investigations
    • Diagnosis
    • Treatment including prescriptions
    • Certification
  3. Follow up (if required)
    If further certification or ongoing treatment is required, InjuryNET can coordinate referral to an InjuryNET doctor.

Requirements

  • 3G/4G/WiFi/Other suitable internet connection
  • Desktop or laptop computer or portable device with a web cam

Benefits

  • Video allows for more thorough consultation than a telephone discussion.
  • The cost of video contact (per unit time) with a doctor in business hours is similar to that of a face-to-face consultation.
  • Use of a centralised video service allows for the very best doctors to be used exclusively. We have managed hundreds of cases with a lost time rate of less than 0.5% and approximately 10% of cases requiring a face to face appointment.
  • The key to good results in video consultations is the calibre of medical practitioners providing the service.
