Industry forums on the future of digital health

Have your say in Australia's national digital health strategy.

The Australian Digital Health Agency was created in July by the Australian Government to drive the development and delivery of Australia’s digital health and has commenced a national consultation to understand what the community wants from a modern healthcare system. As part of the consultation, we are hosting two industry forums on the future of digital health in Australia. The findings from the national consultation will be used to develop a national digital health strategy for delivery to Federal Government in 2017.

We want to hear from the industry, from medical software vendors, entrepreneurs and technology companies — anyone in the business of innovation in the health and care industry — on how Australia can take advantage of the opportunities that new technologies offer to improve health and care.

Come and have your say in either Sydney or Brisbane.
