The Health Informatics Society of Australia (HISA) is pleased to invite you to respond to our Call for Submissions for HIC 2017, Australia’s Health Informatics Conference, to be held from 6 – 9 August 2017 at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre.

HIC continues its reputation of creating the best experience in Australia for thought leadership, knowledge sharing and learning in everything associated with digital in healthcare. Bringing together the latest innovations and research, practical case studies, and forward thinking towards a connected and joined-up health system we look forward to your interest and involvement..

HIC 2017 conference will continue with recent themes of highlighting innovation and the digital transformation of the healthcare sector. It will include the central role that information and health informatics brings in connecting the system, being smart with data, and enhancing practitioner and consumer experience in healthcare interactions.

HIC 2017 provides the ideal professional and social environment for clinicians, researchers, health IT professionals, industry and consumers to integrate, educate and share their knowledge to drive innovative thinking, to enhance services and allow greater consumer involvement.

If you are in the business of healthcare, then this invitation is to you. We cannot continue to ‘do’ healthcare using traditional models and thinking. We know there is a lot of good work happening to change the way health is managed. Advanced use of data, innovation and consumer led approaches are dominating the agenda. HIC seeks to bring the healthcare sector together to highlight the power of digital health innovation and health informatics and to observe case studies and good work that is occurring across the sector. We know healthcare demands innovation and new ways of thinking, new models of care that are centred on the individual empowered by digital technologies.

HISA and ACHI encourage you to contribute and participate. You are the leaders of the future of healthcare delivery – have your say, don’t keep it to yourself.
