The second Health Informatics Society of Australia (HISA) Conference on Indigenous Informatics will build on the general recommendations and practical actions from 2011. The one day conference with the primary theme of 'Working together to improve Indigenous Health' will explore how information management, electronic health records and technology can unlock the potential of informatics to improve the evidence base, planning and execution of indigenous health care strategies.
With the conference Keynote Speakers and Round Table Experts we will endeavour to provide an Australian and International perspective to the question: Indigenous health and electronic health records are National but what does it all mean in terms of improvements for communities, patients and providers of healthcare to Indigenous communities?
