For residents in aged care facilities, particularly those is regional or remote areas, making the trip to see a specialist can be both difficult and exhausting. Yet these people, who can be some of the most vulnerable in the community, are often the ones who need the consistent and ongoing care of experienced medical practitioners. Melbourne Geriatricians recognised the challenges in this sector and can deliver customised specialist care without the patient having to leave their facility.

This innovative and easy to implement healthcare model is successfully harnessing the power of telehealth to efficiently and cost effectively monitor geriatric health issues in regional & remote areas where Geriatricians may not be available. The service aims to reduce the number of acute incidents arising out of chronic illness, resulting in fewer hospital visits, admissions and stays
