This paper provides an overview of a current research project being undertaken at the University of Southern Queensland, Australia. The project addresses the issue associated with an existing remote area health care system, through the development of a digital stethoscope suitable for the telehealth environment in the state of Queensland, Australia and the telemedicine environment in India. The economic and social benefits of this technology are highlighted throughout this paper, as is the background that leads to the undertaking of this research, the methodology being undertaken, and the future of the research project over the coming months.
