Abstract

Video conferencing is emerging as a useful clinical tool. Its application has extended to cover home monitoring, psychotherapy, managing patients with chronic diseases, and other various applications. However, utilizing video conferencing capabilities to facilitate discharge processes has to date been sparsely researched. This study explores the possibilities of video conferencing to facilitate better patient discharge processes at a large Australian not-for-profit tertiary healthcare group.
