At last, healthcare equality for all

Everyone deserves quality healthcare no matter where you live. Unfortunately, many remote, regional, and less mobile Australians do not have access to the same quality of healthcare as people in metro areas.  That was, until now.
The Visionflex ‘ProEx Telehealth Hub’ was designed to connect isolated patients to base hospitals or to a specialist/consultant to provide a higher level of care and fast diagnosis.  This reduces the need for expensive and difficult transportation for a face to face consultation.
With the development of the ProEx unit now complete, we are excited to deliver the first systems to the Royal Flying Doctors Service, the Australian Antarctic Division, the Alaskan Telehealth Board, NSW & QLD Health, the Justice Health Department and private clinicians around the country with many more due to roll out soon.

We are launching a monthly members survey - have your vote and see what your colleagues have to say. Please contribute to the survey below. 

I believe a national telehealth strategy would improve the way we implement telehealth locally.

It’s all possible with portable ultrasound machines. It’s peak technological performance. That’s why The Medical Futurist got thrilled when Philips sent us their Lumify system for testing. Check out our Philips Lumify portable ultrasound review below. Read more here
