Telehealth, a term which covers products and solutions that help patients to remotely monitor their own health conditions from the comfort of their homes, is on the rise around Australia and the world.

Increased life expectancy has resulted in the proportion of people aged 85 years and over almost doubling in the period between 1994 and 2014, while the proportion of people aged 65 and older has increased from 11.8 per cent to 14.7 per cent in the same period, according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics.
