Caring for the last 3%: telehealth potential and broadband implications for remote Australia – CSIRO – 26 November 2012

Dr Sarah Dods, Ms Sarah Wood

“Australians living in rural and remote communities currently live with poorer health outcomes than those in urban areas. The current roll out of nationwide broadband connectivity brings new potential for telehealth services to these areas. While most premises will receive broadband by optical-fibe, the most remote areas will receive fixed-wireless or satellite services.

This report discusses how differences in bandwidth and latency between these types of broadband connection can have critical implications for telehealth services.”
