DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/ed47b1/australia_digita) has announced the addition of the "Australia - Digital Economy - E-Health" report to their offering.
E-health may become an area where key killer applications which utilise truly high-speed broadband networks emerge. The Australian Government is a leader in strategic trans-sector thinking, linking e-health developments to the National Broadband Network. Early diagnosis and after-treatment patient monitoring are two areas where significant synergies may be found using applications provided to users at home.
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 broader economic conditions in Australia may be subdued until 2011, spending on e-health solutions is likely to be boosted as part of the larger economic stimulus packages the government is currently enacting. Based on good government policies new private and public industry initiatives were launched in 2010. This report concentrates specifically on developments and projects in Australia.
