On April 16, 2015 Telstra Health announced that they have launched a home telehealth platform called MyCareManager that combines technologies such as online portals, WebRTC-based video conferencing, Bluetooth-enabled telemonitoring and an integration engine powered by the FHIR draft standard for interoperability that promises to be an affordable, sustainable solution for aged and community care providers. Aimed predominantly at aged and community care organisations, the system is configurable through an easy to use content management system, allowing care providers to tailor what services and content they want to be provided to the particular client. MyCareManager will be able to be purchased through community and residential care organisations and will then be provided as a self-service portal and health monitoring platform for suitable clients.
