Medinet is an app that medical practices use to provide online health care to their patients. As a GP, Medinet gives you the option to work flexible hours and consult with patients from the comfort of your home. Medinet is used by many GPs who have young families or are already working part-time but want to provide additional support to their patients when they are not at their practice. We are not a virtual practice and do not provide GPs with provider numbers.
How does it work?
Step 1: After your medical practice has signed up to use Medinet, download the Medinet Doctor App from the App Store or Google Play. We will reach out to you to confirm your AHPRA registration and identity. Our support team will then provide you with onboarding so you can be confident to use Medinet.
Step 2: Fill in your profile, which includes your usual practice’s provider number and prescriber number.
Step 3: Make your status ‘online’ when you are ready to consult with patients. Be notified when your regular patients reach out to you, or consult with patients in the virtual wait room. All patients are required to provide their regular practice and GP information upon registration, so they are directed to consult with GPs from your practice whenever you’re online. Clinical summaries are also sent to the patient’s regular GP upon receiving patient consent.
