HISA is pleased to announce The Hon. Jillian Skinner MP, Minister for Health in NSW, will be presenting at the Australian Telehealth Conference (ATC) 2016.
Minister Skinner has more experience in the health field than any other politician in Australia, having first been appointed Shadow Minister for Health in 1995.
In 2011, she was appointed NSW Minister for Health as well as the first dedicated Minister for Medical Research in the state or nation.
The Minister’s achievements as NSW Minister for Health include:
- record health spending to deliver tens of thousands more emergency department treatments, hospital admissions and elective surgeries.
- an unprecedented hospital building program which will exceed $10 billion in two terms.
- devolving the NSW health system so Local Health Districts have responsibility for operational matters such as budgets, workforce and patient care.
- greater engagement in decision making by clinicians and staff, which has boosted morale and encourages innovation and new models of care to flourish.
ATC will shine a light on the best sustainable programs, the potentially disruptive business models, and the latest government initiatives that are converging to make telehealth mainstream.
