The Reasons to Attend the HIC 09 Conference are Compelling!

The HIC 09 Conference is being held in Canberra between August 19 and 21, 2009.

The conference web site is found here:


In a series of posts over the next two weeks I want to highlight some of the goodies on offer, and encourage you to attend if you possibly can.

All the details and registration is available on the link above.

Alert 4.

The Reasons to Attend are Compelling

There are two major reasons to make a last minute decision to attend HIC'09 in Canberra next week.

There are increasing signs that the Federal Government will substantially fund the proposals coming out of the NHHRC report. If that is the case, then it is critical that you attend HIC'09 to understand how to best position yourself or your organisation to fully participate in this fundamental change to Australian healthcare.

The second reason is that HIC'09 will be the first opportunity to hear the outcomes of HISA's two major studies. The first on the Australian health informatics workforce has been a mammoth activity with over 1200 healthcare professionals responding. This study gives a deep insight into the Australian health informatics workforce and the issues that need to be addressed to prepare Australia for the implementation of the proposed e-Health strategy.

The second survey is a detailed response to the Individual Health Identifier discussion paper released by the Department of Health and Aging. The nature of the health privacy regulation being developed will have a deep and lasting impact on how e-health is managed in Australia. It is important that you understand these issues and attending HIC'09 is the simplest and most effective way of doing this.

The need for you to attend is compelling, from a financial, policy or practice point of view, HIC'09 is the conference you must get to in 2009. Register now!

You can’t miss it!

Hi David
I think I have a link to HISA must check! I'm keen to increase the number of readers I have from Australia and NZ and wondered if we could possibly swap links, or even blog posts?
Great work,
Best regards,
