Adoption of digital health tools can help specialists and their teams when delivering health services across Australia.
Based on the latest ABS census, people with a long-term health condition are more likely to see three or more healthcare providers and more than 10% report that there are issues caused by a lack of communication between them. This makes the information that specialists can access and provide through digital health technology critical to continuity of care.
