Telehealth to expand services in Central Australia

The Agency's Chief Executive Tim Kelsey said he was delighted the Agency is working with the Northern Territory Government to improve telehealth service delivery in remote Australia.

"The National Telehealth Connection Service will help improve access to health services to those patients needing it most. This was a strong message through the national consultation on digital health we conducted – Australians want to be able to access services when and where they need to. Using technology to achieve this will benefit patients and their healthcare providers and we look forward to working with the Central Australia Health Service on the development of the service," said Mr Kelsey.
