HealthDirect Australia shared some handy tips on how to prepare for a telehealth consultation.

Make yourself comfortable

  • Find yourself a private, quiet space and comfortable chair
  • Turn off radios and TVs and close the doors and windows to reduce noise

Line up and light up your face

  • Make sure your face is close to and directly in front of your device’s camera
  • Have light in front or above you for the best image (not behind you)

Keep your device (desktop, laptop or mobile) still and powered

  • Prop your device up against something stable or use a stand
  • Make sure it is fully charged or plugged in

Internet connection

  • Choose a space close to your modem or where you have a good signal
  • Ask other people in your home not to use the internet during your telehealth consultation
