Healthcare Technology in Context: Lessons for Telehealth in the Age of COVID-19

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

Explores the mechanisms influencing telehealth services in the context of the Australian and Brazilian universal healthcare systems and the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Examines how technology supports separated care through a discussion of contemporary fears and beliefs about technology, organisational issues and the sociotechnical codes that align medical practice.
Concludes that provision of telehealth services as a part of a new normal for healthcare will depend on how we collectively shape the use of technology.
