The Digital Transformation of Health

Meeting dates: 4-5 August 2016

The Senate’s ‘Digital transformation of healthcare' meeting gave clinicians, health system leaders, consumers and digital health experts the opportunity to share experiences and knowledge of the digital hospital and cutting edge digital technology. It is critical that clinicians keep up to date with what is available in the digital space and what it means for patients and clinicians. We must also be thoughtful in the way technology is integrated - change management is a critical step in the process. The conference also identified a number of digital hospital challenges - the need to ensure an ongoing commitment to necessary investment in digital hospital infrastructure as well as the importance of ensuring digital hospital solutions for regional and rural Queensland. We cannot afford a 2-tiered health system and the Senate will advocate strongly around these issues.
