While many steps have been taken to ensure all Australians have easy access to quality medical care and services, there’s always room for improvement, especially for those living in regional and remote communities.
Luckily, as with most things, technological development has made accessing quality medical treatment and advice easier than ever. And perhaps one of the most exciting and innovative apps improving the health of Australians across the country is Instant Consult.
A free smartphone app that connects patients with fully qualified and Australian-registered GPs through video call; Instant Consult is changing the way Australians are able to access medical care.
The app enables patients to connect with doctors from anywhere in Australia, 24/7 and provides an affordable and professional consultation. This process not only grants app users access to medical care without leaving the house – something that’s particularly helpful when the thought of getting out of bed is too much to bear – it effectively reduces the strain on emergency departments.
The real-time consultations are particularly valuable for patients in remote and regional communities, the elderly, patients with limited mobility or families seeking unexpected medical care.
In order to broaden its scope, Instant Consult has also partnered with leading Australian pharmacies to accept digital prescriptions, allowing patients to receive medication without delay. Priced from $35, the app offers quality medical advice for less than many face-to-face GP appointments.
With Instant Consult you have access to Australian registered, fully qualified, insured and experienced doctors at your fingertips.
