The Referral Process

Who should be referred for TMS?

Individuals grappling with Treatment Resistant Depression, Anxiety, and Chronic Pain. Generally, Medicare extend coverage for Treatment Resistant Depression if a patient hasn’t adequately responded to at least two antidepressant medications, citing either ineffectiveness or intolerable side effects.

HHC sees patients privately, self-funded, NDIS, DVA and Work Cover.

Some reasons why a person might not be able to get TMS are if they’ve had epilepsy or seizures before, if they have metal implants in their body, like aneurysm clips, or if they’re younger than 18.

How does Neuronavigated TMS work?

Neuronavigated Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) combines the precision of neuronavigation technology with the therapeutic effects of TMS.

By using real-time brain imaging to precisely target specific areas of the brain that need stimulation, this innovative approach revolutionises psychiatric treatment by providing personalised and effective plan to manage the patient’s symptoms. The improved accuracy of nTMS means that there is less chance of stimulating unintended areas of the brain. This reduces the risk of side effects and makes nTMS a safer and more tolerable treatment option.

What sets neuronavigated TMS apart is its precision. By integrating neuronavigational technology, practitioners can create accurate and personalised brain maps for each individual. This mapping guides the TMS pulses to exact locations, ensuring the stimulation is tailored to the patient’s unique brain structure and connectivity.

Partnering with HHC

Whether you are considering starting nTMS service as an extension to your practice, there are several requirements to set up an nTMS clinic, from regulatory requirements, purchasing, location, staff training, and day-to-day management, we’ll help you get established with our beneficial partnership models, which will provide expertise and assistance so you can focus on what you do best: helping your patients live their best lives.
