Organisations invited to contribute to the implementation plan for Australia’s National Digital Health Strategy

In 2017, Australia’s National Digital Health Strategy - Safe, Seamless and Secure was approved by the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) Health Council putting the consumer at the centre of their healthcare and providing choice, control and transparency. The Agency, in consultation with the states and territories, has drafted a Framework for Action to support the strategy’s implementation and we are now running a consultation phase to gain wider feedback on the draft framework.

The next step is getting collaboration on co-producing its implementation plan – the Framework for Action. A consultation draft is available for comment. It reflects what consumers, healthcare providers and a range of organisations told us during last year’s consultation on the development of the National Digital Health Strategy, and has been developed with assistance from all the governments of Australia.

The draft Framework for Action and consultation form is available at https://frameworkforaction.digitalhealth.gov.au/. You will be able to provide your organisation’s submission in the feedback form.
