What's new in Helix
Integrated telehealth consultations
With Telehealth in Helix, patients will be sent a secure link prior to their consultation, while GPs can simply launch a Telehealth consultation from within the patient record. Unlike alternative solutions, that use multiple devices or applications, you can update the patient notes and history in an alongside window utilising a safe connection and without the risk of having the wrong patient record open during a Telehealth consultation.
Electronic prescriptions have now been enabled in MedicalDirector Helix for prescribers in Melbourne Metro.
We have prepared a resource pack which includes everything you need to get up and running — set up instructions, how-to guides, Government requirements, and more.
