Choices will shape telehealth’s future: economist

Telehealth will face great difficulties if the health sector fails to think outside of the current structures.

This is what Paul Frijters, professor of health economics at the University of Queensland, told Nursing Review in the lead up to his presentation at the Australian Telehealth Conference 2016.

At the event, Frijters unpacked some of the bottlenecks that affect systems such as telehealth and dove into the idea that health, and telehealth in particular, is a credence good.

Nursing Review sat down with Frijters ahead of the conference to discuss some of the constraints telehealth faces and possible future directions in which the service can head.
