Speaking during a panel session at the recent AFR Healthcare Summit , Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) President Dr Harry Nespolon said the way remote healthcare and telehealth is offered has changed little since the 1960s. “Doctors still need to see patients in front of them to dispense care. It’s not just about providing face-to-face communication in an effectively and timely manner in rural and remote Australia,” she said.
