Welcome

We invite you to attend the 2nd National Rural & Remote Telehealth Conference being held at the Empire Theatre on 5 and 6 October 2016 in Toowoomba, Queensland.

The use of technology to overcome the tyrannies of distance is a well-established tradition in the Australian Bush with the Reverend John Flynn establishing the Royal Flying Doctor Service creating a vast network of wirelesses radios into remote communities by using Alfred Traeger’s pedal-powered radio. The RFDS and later the School of the Air used to model to improve access by people living in remote communities to health and education and information services.

Applications of the information communication technology to improve health outcomes are still being explored. This second telehealth conference focusing on rural and remote issues will assess what has occurred over the last two years with a particular emphasis on reach of health services into the home.

This conference has four main aims with a particular emphasis on sustainably embedding telehealth enabled service delivery models in rural and remote communities:

  • Facilitate shared problem solving, learning and innovation
  • Identify opportunities to enhance and integrate the telehealth capability of both the public and private health systems.
  • Develop strategies to involve patients, carers, clinicians and policy makers to increase and sustain momentum for improved telehealth services.
  • Improve and embed telehealth enabling business processes and systems with a focus on service sustainability across the health sector.
