Advancing knowledge and research capacity in telehealth

CRE Telehealth logo

The CRE in Telehealth was funded by the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) from October 2013. It concluded in September 2019.

Its primary aim was to support researchers to develop capacity in telehealth.

The CRE’s research team focused on the implementation of telehealth in a variety of locations and facilities underserved by health professionals, including residential aged care facilities, rural communities, in patients’ homes (home care) and in Indigenous communities. The team also examined technology solutions and current telehealth challenges — economics and business processes — in each setting.

The CRE research team conveyed a Telehealth FUTURES forum on October 15th, 2019. The goal of the forum was to identify what needs to change in Australia for telehealth to become an integral part of routine care.
