VIDEO: Speaker Spotlight | Shannon Nott

In this segment, Shannon Nott who is the Rural Director of Medical Services for Western NSW LHD and Clinical Director for the Virtual Care Accelerator with eHealth NSW offers great insights on adopting virtual care models in Australia. What can government do to drive adoption of virtual care models across Australia? What is required in terms of funding and what impact have MBS numbers already had with telehealth? How can we tackle workforce capability as we move to new models of care? How we can ensure robust evaluation of these models of care and how do we tackle fragmentation and the need for seamless integration? These were some of the key questions which came out of the National Telehealth Summit this year and which need continued discussion and work.
