Telstra Health building the bridge that will take telehealth mainstream

Telstra Health is moving into the second phase in the development of the National Telehealth Connection Service (NTCS), which will allow hospitals and external healthcare providers to hook into health-grade telehealth networks through a common platform that also handles scheduling, referrals and clinical document exchange as well as a virtual meeting room for video conferencing.

Telstra Health was contracted last year by the Northern Territory government to begin the first phase of the project, which involved proof-of-concept technical and clinical trials in two Aboriginal communities to build them a private, secure video connection service solely for telehealth.
