Progress in e-health developments in Australia remains slow and low key. Unlike the USA for instance, where e-health is driven by health insurance companies and private health care organisations, the developments in Australia largely depend on government initiatives. The fact that private companies are driving the development elsewhere is a clear indication that significant cost savings can be achieved through e-health.

Back in 2010, it looked like that the national broadband network (NBN) could be a catalyst in kick-starting these initiatives, the most important policy initiatives in this respect were linked to the Medicare reforms, which provide health insurance coverage for selected video consults in rural and regional areas, as well as projects linked to the personally controlled electronic health record (PCEHR).

However, with the downgrading of the NBN and a lack of interest from the current government in e-health in general, hardly any new initiatives have been undertaken since 2013, while the early initiatives have largely been put on hold.

This inertia also has an effect on other e-health initiatives that were starting to emerge in parallel with the early NBN e-health developments. As most e-health services depend on policy leadership from the government as well as on a high quality, high-speed broadband network for their distribution. The focus is now back again on the States, where new and interesting e-health policies are being developed.

This report concentrates on key developments in e-health projects in Australia. We provide an overview of trials, both publicly and privately funded, initiatives in e-health with an overview of pilot programs as well. For an overview of e-health, see separate report: Australia - Digital Economy - E-Health Insights, Statistics and Analysis.

We try to be as accurate and up-to-date as possible but while projects often get launched with much fan-fare, there is no information for projects that don't continue or are stalled.
