A National Telehealth Strategy for Australia 2013 – 2018 – The Australasian Telehealth Society – April 2013

“Health systems worldwide face sustainability pressures and challenges, leading to widespread reform agendas including ‘new models of care’ and ‘enabling technologies’. Australia must deliver health care to a varied population spread from dense urban and regional settings to sparse rural or remote areas, creating access and quality differentials. With appropriate high level direction driven by a National Strategy, Telehealth can play a significant role in enabling the changes required to respond to these needs. In this discussion paper we argue that the directions to be set by a National Strategy for Telehealth should be targeted, purposeful and efficient in nature. Based on input obtained from a multi-sectoral roundtable discussion, we propose a set of key strategies and corresponding operational plan elements, which we believe can help advance the development of a full National Strategy for Telehealth in Australia.”
