Virtual Health

What is virtual health?

Virtual Health is any interaction between patients and/or members of their care team, occurring remotely, using any form of communication or information technology.

Virtual Health can enable:

  • Access to care from home or a more convenient location.
  • Involvement of family/carers in appointments, wherever they are.
  • Remote monitoring of patient health conditions from home.
  • Greater opportunities for collaboration between clinical and non-clinical teams.

Advancements in technology have created opportunities for new and evolving virtual health services. Technologies that support the delivery of virtual health services include:

  • Telehealth and videoconferencing platforms.
  • Mobile health apps e.g. iPhone or android apps.
  • Electronic health records and patient portals.
  • Biomedical devices and wearables e.g. pulse oximeters.
  • Artificial intelligence (AI) platforms e.g. data-driven clinical decision support tools.
