Budget 2020: Extra funds for ongoing telehealth, national device tracking system
The Australian government has allocated $18.6 million in addition to the $2.4 billion it has already announced for telehealth in its COVID-19 emergency response to build an interim system to support ongoing telehealth in the future.
It will also fund the introduction of a unique device identification system for implanted medical devices to the tune of $7.7m, along with the development of a medicines unique identification framework.
