  • The sustainability of health services in Australia requires a whole of system approach to the spectrum of service delivery. With Government health expenditure now in excess of $100 billion, health now accounts for over 9% of Australia’s annual GDP. New cost-effective services must be developed to meet the simultaneous needs of the health system, the hospital, and the doctor – all of whom need to be involved in the management of the health of the patient.
  • The three pronged thrust for CSIRO research in broadband is Enabling services for Broadband (making them more efficient and effective) Ensuring everyone (99.99999%) get access to high speed, symmetric, reliable communications Changing the way people engage with technology (Centrelink example of dealing with illiterate people is useful here)
  • Re-use existing broadcasting infrastructure and spectrum Beam form signals over the long distances to individual households based on new synchronisation and co-operative networking methods optimise signals over distance Apply a combination of CSIRO patented technologies Require a change to Government’s spectrum allocation

    9. 9. Conclusion The power of the NBN is providing access to reliable, high-speed, symmetric communications to ALL Australians ...the entire eHealth agenda is underpinned by high quality, high-speed broadband networks Dr Mukesh Haikerwal, NEHTA, Committee Hansard , Sydney, 5 August 2009, p. 28.• When everyone has access to high speed, reliable, symmetric communications, delivery models for services become feasible• CSIRO can helpCSIRO : Innovation in a Broadband World
