SASH is pleased to offer remote Specialist consultation services to our referring vet partners and their clients in regional and interstate areas.
Sports Medicine & Rehabilitation
All referrals for remote consultations must be made through our Referring Vet Portal. If your clinic has not received log-in details or you are having issues accessing the portal, please email email@example.com or call (02) 9002 7290.
To ensure we make the most informative assessment for you and your client, it is important to provide as much information as possible BEFORE the remote consultation.
We require a full patient history, your most recent physical exam findings and all supporting diagnostics (imaging, pathology, blood work etc).
Further information is also required for the following specialties:
All completed forms and supporting information should be uploaded to our Referring Vet Portal. The remote consult can NOT proceed until this has been completed
Once an appointment has been made, your Client will be sent a welcome email with links to our Client Portal, a consent form and any clinical forms for the relevant speciality. These will need to be filled out and returned to SASH before the consultation.
At the time of the consult, the client will be called on their mobile phone or dial-in to a video streaming service called Zoom using their mobile phone or personal computer (as agreed with the Specialist).
Payment for a remote consultation is to be made by the client at the time of booking.
We will call your clinic to discuss the patient and send you a detailed referral letter with treatment and/or further diagnostic recommendations. We will also send a discharge summary with recommendations to the client.
Once you have discussed the findings with your client, you may wish to arrange additional diagnostic testing to occur at your clinic. If you would like further assistance in assessment of the case and these results, please book time with us to discuss. This service will be provided for $79 (incl. GST) and will be invoiced to you directly for each round of diagnostic tests.
Subsequent actions such as the client presenting to SASH and/or additional remote consults can then be booked as required.
