The Australian Government’s Australian Digital Health Agency was created in July to drive the development and delivery of Australia’s digital health strategy.
In his message, CEO Tim Kelsey encourages everyone to take the opportunity to say what they want from a modern healthcare system:
“Australia needs a new National Digital Health Strategy which will set out the priorities for national coordination and investment in the digital health solutions that will shape the future of our health system. We’re engaging with all areas of the community - including consumers, clinicians, healthcare providers, peak and advisory bodies, research and science, industry, and technology - to ensure the work we do is shaped around their needs, wants and aspirations. The findings from the national consultation will be used to develop a national digital health strategy for delivery to Government in 2017.”
