Synopsis

E-health is becoming an area from which key killer applications that utilise truly high-speed broadband networks emerge.

As the financing of the public health systems in Australia becomes increasingly costly an opportunity exists to lower costs through more effective use of web services for healthcare consumers. With widely available and cost-effective high-speed broadband infrastructure, e-health is enabling customers to benefit from advances in medical technology and medical services.

While a start was made in reporting the development of e-health during 2009-2013 this came to a grinding halt with the change in government. It took until mid-2015 for a range of new e-health announcements to be made. And it will take to time to develop and implement.

In the meantime national and international private initiatives continue; the global e-health and fitness wearable market is set to grow to $40 billion over coming years, and in Australia Telstra is taking on some very interesting initiatives, utilising the gap that the incumbent industry is leaving wide open for new companies to fill.

In this report we provide an overview of e-health, along with analysis, industry statistics and benefits that e-health will be able to deliver with the correct ICT mix of developments. For information on e-health, projects, pilots and initiatives, see separate report: Australia - Digital Economy - E-Health - Pilots and Projects.
