Since 2005, staff at the Centre for Online Health (COH) have been exploring the use of telemedicine to support Indigenous children in rural communities. In 2009, a mobile telemedicine-enabled health screening service was established in Cherbourg, a remote Aboriginal community in central Queensland.The service, designed to complement and extend existing community-based service, provides routine assessment of children at high risk of ear disease and potential hearing impairment. The screening service comprises a custom-designed screening van with the necessary telemedicine equipment on board.
