Why practice online?
Access to psychiatry, in many parts of Australia, is problematic. Telehealth can help to alleviate access issues and can also provide an excellent source of patients and income for Psychiatrists living anywhere in Australia. Did you know that patients in rural and remote areas, Residential Aged Care Facilities, and Aboriginal Medical Service facilities are eligible for Medicare funded Telehealth? Join the PSYCH2U panel and we can help you to build a practice with almost no overheads and outstanding earning potential.
50% uplift in billings
When seeing eligible patients by telehealth you will receive your normal Medicare fee PLUS an additional 50%. PSYCH2U automates your MBS billing so that the entire scheduled fee is paid into your nominated account the following day.
Flexible work hours
Using the GP2U platform, you don't need to maintain publicly accessible consulting rooms. Our virtual waiting room allows you to consult from anywhere in the world. All you need is a laptop and high quality internet connection.
Dr Ross Kirkman case study
After 30 years practicing across Australia, including 5 years flying in and out of North Western Tasmania, Dr Ross Kirkman decided to shift to an online only practice with GP2U. Ross has been able to maintain the same income working just 3 days a week and also enjoys much lower practice overheads.
"It took me about 2 or 3 months of thinking of moving to full time online but the only process took about 3 weeks because GP2U allows you to pretty much set up and start from day 1, taking in patient referrals, seeing patients online and once you have established a good relationship with a particular group practice for example, you will suddenly get a lot of referrals"
