Tele-health benefits rural Australians - new evidence

A new study has found that tele-health has delivered some gains to rural and remote communities through improved access and quality of clinical care, as well as providing benefits to health professionals. The study found that there were a range of reported benefits of tele-health to rural and remote Australians. These include: reduced expense and inconvenience when compared with having to travel long distances to access a service; the improved access to services that a locally-provided specialist service offers and the improved quality of the existing clinical services.
