Enhanced Telehealth Reach aims to better prepare our system to manage planned care using telehealth more efficiently. A number of priority opportunities have been identified as needing a push to get implemented and operating efficiently.

• Intercampus Telehealth to reduce transfers to specialist appointments

• Rural engagement (patient and care team) reducing travel and time costs (patient and staff)

• Multi-disciplinary meetings (cross district health boards, and inter district health boards) to support optimal planned care.

This project is funded by the Ministry of Health.
