ATHS Survey: Telehealth Services during COVID-19

We undertook an online cross-sectional survey of subscribers to the Australian Telehealth Society (ATHS) newsletter between July 5th, 2020 and September 10th, 2020. An abstract from the published paper, and the survey results is available.

Telehealth Awareness Week

As a result of discussion and enthusiasm expressed during the final panel session of SFT 2018, the ATHS committed to supporting a national ‘Telehealth Awareness Week’ in 2019.  This builds on the experience and successes of the Western Australia campaigns in 2017 and 2018.
