Pre HIC Workshop – Connecting with
medical devices

9.00am-6.00pm

The role of the nurse in digital health innovation for consumers, clinicians, connectivity and community

Nursing Informatics Australia (NIA), a special interest group of HISA, is pleased to invite you to participate in NIA 2016, Australia’s Nursing Informatics Forum, to be held at the Crowne Plaza Melbourne on Sunday 24 July 2016. The theme of the conference is: The Role of the Nurse in Digital Health Innovation for Consumers, Clinicians, Connectivity, and the Community. This provides nurses from all clinical settings to consider the different aspects of innovation and the digital transformation of the healthcare sector, and the central role that information and health informatics brings. The conference will provide a platform for nursing leadership, knowledge exchange, and to debate the current and future health system.

1.30-5.30pm With increasing adoption of EMR in hospitals, and emerging home care strategies, this half day, pre-HIC 2016 workshop will explore integration of medical and home care/monitoring devices with the EMR. The workshop will include how to view and use the new sources of information. The initial step defines the business and architectural “problem space” and explores standards and non-standard based solutions. Hospitals need to consider how to move integration of vital signs from the ICU to ED and the wards, along with connection with therapeutic devices such as infusion pumps and emerging integrated e-medication management. Home care devices support telehealth, through to post hospital care and the long term monitoring and support of the elderly and chronically unwell.
