Spatial science harnessed for country WA digital health readiness project

WA Primary Health Alliance (WAPHA) and workforce agency Rural Health West have commissioned a research study to identify and overcome barriers to wider adoption of digital health technologies such as telehealth in general practice in rural and remote Western Australia.

The Country WA Digital Readiness project will use the research skills of the Australia and New Zealand Cooperative Research Centre for Spatial Information (CRCSI) to look at the size, location and connectivity of general practices in country WA to work out if geography could be hindering the uptake of digital technologies.
