With each passing day in the field of healthcare and medical services provision, there are new challenges that come up and demand creative attention. The silver lining behind this is that with the application of science, technology and principles and technology of medicine, newer strategies and solutions have been successfully constructed and applied. Such has been the case with telehealth.  Telehealth has been applied with relative success, with challenges being specific to every geographical jurisdiction of medical intervention. The situation is also applicable in rural and remote Australia. Because of the specifics that characterise rural and remote Australia, it is obvious that there are issues that govern, strengthen or undermine the delivery of telehealth in the aforementioned geographical area, as shall be seen in the ensuing discussion.
