Remote consultations can be accessed from anywhere
Apr 25, 2019
The FSHS healthcare professionals can now be reached from anywhere via video consultations. Remote consultation is a pilot project being conducted in spring 2019, in Helsinki and Tampere for oral health, and in all units for:
- health checks,
- nutrition counselling,
- physiotherapy follow-up visits and
- general health and mental health follow-up visits.
Remote consultation is not suitable for situations where you need a physical examination.
During the pilot you can agree on a remote consultation with the FSHS healthcare professional when booking an appointment. Starting winter 2019–2020, remote consultations will be more widely available. From the start of the autumn term, you’ll be able to choose a remote consultation whenever you want, provided it’s offered in Self appointment booking instead of a regular appointment.
High-quality student healthcare promptly and easily
The positive experiences obtained with remote physiotherapist and dermatologist consultations, among others, have encouraged us to expand our remote consultation services. Remote consultation also responds to students’ wishes: there is a need for more flexible consultations that are available from anywhere. Remote consultations mean services can be provided in a new way. It brings a new level to appointments and opens up new possibilities for both clients and the FSHS.
The service also furthers the FSHS’s strategic goals and ensures that the FSHS is able to provide high-quality student healthcare promptly and easily.
