Abstract: The benefits of telehealth in remote Australia have been demonstrated. Uptake of telehealth in the NT has been limited, for a variety of reasons e.g. inadequate access to broadband. Through collaboration between stakeholders, this program has developed/will develop staged implementation at different test sites with solutions based on staffing numbers and remoteness. Program partners, Aboriginal Medical Services Alliance Northern Territory (AMSANT), Broadband for the Bush Alliance (B4BA Ltd), National Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation (NACCHO), Indigenous Remote Communications Association (IRCA), eMerge IT, Telstra are working on expanding the uptake of telehealth as well as expanding digital literacy in remote communities. The collaboration continues to strengthen and expand. There have been many learnings along the journey and some unexpected benefits.
