About HISA ACT

The Australian Capital Territory branch is being launched by a group of dedicated professionals from diverse backgrounds with an interest in informatics across a range of applications in health and clinical practice.

The incoming committee is committed to encouraging dialogue, debate and shared experiences in health informatics for not only the ACT but Australia as a whole.

Anyone with an interest or curiosity in the health informatics field is invited to join one of our educational events. Up to 3-4 events will be held annually and present a fantastic opportunity to learn more about new systems, developments, strategies and technologies. They provide valuable networking opportunities and a chance to interact with like-minded individuals.

We welcome feedback or requests from the ACT community, and look forward to working with our community and HISA’s national office to represent and advocate in national health informatics forums on behalf of our membership.

I have just completed my second Master’s degree thus finally have time to re-join both HISA and Wounds Australia. I got interested in informatics as a theatre bookings officer/theatre shift coordinator and having a partner, who works in IT, made the transition into Health IT a lot easier. I love learning and trying to get a richness of information to people where and when they need it to; guide clinical practice, improve patient safety and of course, patient/client experiences. When away from work, I love working in my garden and hope to return to my love of; drawing, painting and sewing, also finally do piano lessons.
