AIIA NSW Healthcare Briefing - "The NEHTA Call to Business"

As the pace of e-health reform gathers momentum, this is a valuable opportunity to explore the latest opportunities emerging out of Australia’s national e-health investment.

To kick off our year of AIIA Healthcare Briefings, we will be joined by Lisa Smith, who has taken on a challenging new role as Head of Implementation for NEHTA.

Lisa’s appointment marks significant progress in Australia’s e-Health agenda as community and political focus moves beyond planning and design to the establishment of ground-breaking ehealth projects.

* Don’t miss this opportunity to learn about NEHTA’s staged approach to implementation and how this will help fast-track the journey towards a Personally-Controlled Electronic Health Record (PCEHR).

* Find out more about the concept behind Wave 1 and Wave 2 project sites and how the vendor panel is assisting the procurement process.

* Hear about the current status of Healthcare Identifiers and their significance as a foundation for PCEHR design.

* Discover how the private sector can help and get involved!

Our briefing moderator, Andrew James will lead our discussions on what companies need to be doing to be business ready to take advantage of the e-health developments.

Please come along to listen, ask questions, and make suggestions.

AIIA is supporting NEHTA in the introduction of better ways of electronically collecting and securely exchanging health information in Australian healthcare.


The invitation is found here:

Go to the website to register. Sounds like a fun one to attend.

I wonder whether any actual clarity on this list of important issues will emerge. Certainly those who can attend should to, at the very least, ask a few hard questions!

The slides and transcripts should hopefully turn up pretty quickly on the NEHTA web site!
