Rural Health

Everyone deserves access to high quality medical care, no matter where they live

For people living in rural, remote or regional locations, a trip to the doctor for a check-up or life-saving treatment could mean a journey of hundreds or even thousands of kilometers, costing time and money.

Thanks to state-of-the-art technology like the ProEX Telehealth Hub, healthcare is now more accessible to more people than ever before.

“People in remote areas have poor access to health services, resulting in higher rates of hospitalisation and earlier death.*”

In Outback Australia, a small medical clinic serving a large area can use a ProEX Telehealth Hub to connect residents via satellite to a doctor or specialist for a remote consultation or examination. The local practitioner has access to vital patient information and expert guidance so they can make crucial decisions that may even save a life.

This telehealth solution not only provides faster access to healthcare services, but access to services that may not otherwise be available meaning a more accurate and timely diagnosis.
