What is the renewal date of my membership?

Unlike all other HISA memberships, the Digital Health Executives Network (DHEN) memberships have their own unique renewal dates – this means if you join on the 1 July then your membership is valid through to the 1 July the following year.

This is also the same for the HISA component of your membership.

Do I have to be a member of HISA or ACHI to join the Network?

No. The Network is open to all digital health leaders across Australia regardless of your affiliation – as long as you are in a leadership and/or management role within your organisation.

What sort of activities would the Network be involved in?

Planned activities for the Network include webinars, in-person events held across Australia’s public and private hospitals, curated ongoing online discussions.

HISA would also like to hear from members regarding your issues and challenges and what you would like the Network to do to help plan future activities.
