And maybe something about linking in somehow with local service providers, drawing on local knowledge and building local knowledge/capacity?
(To reduce the risk of reliance on telehelath services provided by urban-based organisations seeking to maximise profit, without adequate consideration of local context)?

in the age of NDIS by Telehealth its vital to involve local health providers who will be the ones picking up the pieces if it goes pear shaped for any reason. There also needs to be care taken not to destroy existing small business allied health providers if a Big Provider beams in t from the capital.
