Connected Care event early bird sales end tomorrow

3 minute read

Wild Health 24 in October in Melbourne will dive into leading edge government initiatives for connected care and getting around current funding restraints.

At no time in the history of the Australian healthcare system has there been so much activity in terms of impending major changes to technology and platforms in the healthcare system. And the changes are not just being driven by government.

Across the nation hospitals and corporate healthcare providers are moving rapidly towards new models of virtual and connected care to get in front of major workforce issues and rapidly deteriorating budget positions across the states. 

Virtual and connected-care models are springing up across the country despite the fact public funding models aren’t designed to support them.

The system is creaking with the anticipation of big changes.

Wild Health 24 in October in Melbourne will be taking a deep dive into all the key impending government technology and platform initiatives, their timetables and the path for vendors into participation. It will also examine a range of innovative solutions being pursued by hospitals and other corporate providers outside of what government is doing, in order to help address our immediate workforce and budget problems and reduce some the stress in the system.

Some of the key initiatives to be discussed will include:

  • The plans and timetable for a national Health Information Exchange;
  • The state of Single Digital Front Doors in the states and the potential for a national project;
  • E-requesting for pathology and imaging in real time and what data-sharing initiatives are likely to follow;
