Connect your care team

As an outpatient you may need easy access to your health care team for support and advice, and ongoing monitoring of your condition. 


When you sign up to SmartHealth you get access to HealthTap, an online platform and mobile app that connects you with free healthcare services using your smart phone, tablet device or computer. 

You can use HealthTap to link everyone in your care team together to better manage your health.

HealthTap can help you stay in close contact with your specialist and care team, allowing you to get quick answers when you need them. You can message your health care team directly about a change in your condition or to ask for advice, getting the reassurance you and your family need.
