Specialist

Making better use of digital health will help overcome the tyranny of distance when delivering specialist 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.
