TELEHEALTH CONFERENCE 2011 Speakers

David AllenDavid Allen Managing Director of Telehealth Solutions Australia and Quality Occupational Health

Dr David Allen MBBS(Hons), DPH, FAFOEM is a senior occupational and environmental physician in a multidisciplinary private practice based in Sydney.

David is originally from rural New South Wales and early in his career worked in country hospitals and did retrieval medicine and general practice. He has been working in occupational health for 23 years - the last 15 of which have been in his own practice, Quality Occupational Health based in Merrylands in western Sydney.

David recognised that many organisations struggle to access medical services in rural and remote areas. Since 2008 he has been providing primary care and specialist telemedicine to sites across Australia for organisations such as Country Energy NSW (now Essential Energy). His practice now provides telemedicine services 24/7 Australia-wide.

He established Telehealth Solutions Australia (www.telehealth.net.au) to promote the use of telehealth. He is keen to extend the use of this to chronic disease management for specialists and general practitioners. He is particularly interested in using IP videoconferencing for training internationally, particularly into developing countries.
