Australia uses broadband videoconferencing to provide psychiatric services to underserved rural areas

Australia uses broadband videoconferencing to provide psychiatric services to underserved rural areas

From Australia, another example of the ways broadband access can benefits underserved areas:

"A broadband-based solution to a lack of psychiatric services in rural and remote Australia was unveiled today in Hobart. Heralded as Australia's first private eHealth broadband network, HealthShare uses video-conferencing technology to allow psychiatric consultations to be conducted online in GPs' offices. HealthShare chairman and Brisbane psychiatrist Dr Nigel Prior said the network was already being used by 40 GPs and 10 psychiatrists in Queensland and would be rolled out within months to the rest of Australia."

Two different reports on the subject:
