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

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
