What is Telehealth?

April 13th, 2020

As you may have seen in the news, a range of fitness instructors in Spain are hosting exercises classes from rooftops so that quarantined residents can join in from their balcony.

Although this may seem a little bit outside the box, being able to exercise without leaving the house is a great idea – especially now when the world is housebound due to the coronavirus.

What is Telehealth?

Telehealth is the use of digital information and communication technologies, such as computers and mobile devices, to access health care and exercise services remotely and manage your health. It provides you with the ability to still receive specialist health care without the need to travel.

The benefits of telehealth include:

  • Telehealth is easy to use;
  • Improved personal access to health care;
  • Your progress can be managed remotely;
  • Reduced travel and inconvenience for families, carers and health professionals; and
  • Access to peer support and education.
