Telemedicine

Our new National Telemedicine Project aims to serve as a platform for sharing ideas, and success and failures in the world of tele-ophthalmology.

The Project is supported by the Indigenous and Remote Eye Health Service (IRIS), an initiative of the Australian Society of Ophthalmologists, and funded by the Office of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health (OATSIH).

A broad representative group forms the National Telemedicine Project committee which will serve to distill and then disseminate information to colleagues regarding best practice tele-ophthalmology in Australia and act as a platform for future advocacy at a government level.
