Benefits of Telemedicine & Telehealth

With an increasing number of Australians using telehealth every year MBS Online, there are many situations and people that would greatly benefit from telehealth, including:
- No need to waste time travelling to the Doctor for something that can be simply treated online
- Being filled with sick people, clinics often help the spread of the flu
- You may have a private or embarrassing question or topic you want to discuss with a Doctor
- If your Doctor or Medical Centre isn’t open after hours or on Sundays, you can still be seen and treated.

Doctoroo – the telehealth platform with a difference

Our core mission is taking care of you – whether it be by booking a Doctor online, ordering your medication, arranging medication delivery or any of the other features our users love about us.

About our name: The name doctoroo originated with our core mission –taking care of you, anytime, anywhere. Being an extremely fast Australian-native animal with many species being nocturnal, it was a perfect fit for giving fast access to Australians to a doctor, anytime of the day.

Don’t just take our word for it - Backed by science & research

We’re serious about healthcare and about the health of our users. That’s why we’ve made sure doctoroo actually helps you. Telehealth platforms have been studied, and shown to be beneficial in various ways through widely-recognised scientific research and studies.
1. A 2005 study of a telehealth medical evaluation program at five childcare centers found that the program reduced children’s’ absences due to illness by 63% and avoided provider office or emergency room visits in nearly 94% of cases.
2. A study found that telemedicine resulted in the readmission rate being reduced from 20% to 4% as well as a reduction in the length of stay and overall costs.
3.In the US, 74% of patients said they would use telehealth services
4. About 90% of surveyed healthcare executives report that their organizations have already begun developing or implementing a telemedicine program
5. A 2008 UC-San Francisco study compared skin cancer patients who received store and forward tele-dermatology services with patients who received conventional dermatology referrals. The tele-dermatology patients, on average, completed their initial consults in 4 days, versus 48 days for conventionally referred patients
6. A study of post-traumatic stress disorder patients found that telemedicine patients had fewer treatment program drop-outs, 6% versus 29%.
