In addition to remaining open to conduct face to face independent medical examinations across Australia, ASSESS Medical Group is offering clients their expanded Telehealth solution ASSESS-VIDEO across the BlueJeans and ZOOM video conferencing platforms.  These enterprise grade video conferencing services offer the same privacy and confidentiality requirements that apply to face-to-face assessments. ASSESS-VIDEO assessments are private, secure and are not recorded.

ASSESS Medical Group’s National Marketing Manager Darryn Midson has contributed to a white paper his parent company MedHealth has published on conducting Telehealth IME consultations. Darryn says “Telehealth is not just about technology, it is a solution for new routines and work flows, which continue to put the person being assessed at the centre of care.”

COVID-19 Australia Posts’ commitment to you

At the heart of every Australian community, our people are a regular presence to rely on. A friendly postie, driver or a Post Office and the services we provide are vital lifelines for the most vulnerable in our society, particularly during uncertain times.

We remain fully operational across Australia during Government restrictions on non-essential activity.

Our posties, delivery drivers and post offices continue to operate.

During this time, and as with the bushfires earlier this year, we are committed to continuing VOI services throughout our network of over 1,500 participating Post Offices Australia-wide. As you may have seen in previous communications, our Emergency Management program has been enacted to help manage any business disruption event associated with COVID-19 (coronavirus).

We are constantly innovating and trialling new ways to deliver essential services to all Australians, and to ensure our business is operating in an efficient and safe way. We are:

  • Rolling out screens to all Post Offices to enable them to maintain safety at the counters and to ensure your clients can attend our Post Offices with confidence
  • Continuing to issue health and safety advice throughout our business including our participating VOI Post Office network
  • Remaining vigilant and ready to adapt our processes and implement additional precautions as this pandemic evolves
  • Continuing to enforce high standards of hygiene practices

Our commitment is to continue delivering 99 per cent of VOI Reports into your Property VOI portal within 15 minutes of your client’s interview.

As always, our dedicated VOI Support team can help you with any VOI enquires you may have. They can be reached on landtitleVOI@auspost.com.au or on 1300 364 543.

We thank you for your continued support as our people across the country work hard to support you, your clients and the local community. Further information can be found here.
