What if my consultation is on telehealth?

It is a useful idea to pre-plan a strategy for managing the patient information process for consultations that may occur via telehealth. Practices manage telehealth consultations differently, and therefore depending on your practice process there may be different opportunities for sharing the patient information sheet. For example, the patient information sheet may be shared electronically with the patient prior to the consultation or may be read out during the consultation. This ensures that the patient is aware of the data collection and has an opportunity to opt out if required.
