Informatics – building a gateway between health and welfare

With increasing global and national focus on health and wellbeing, this workshop will explore the convergence of health and welfare and the requirement to widen the informatics agenda to support this.

As health and welfare services increasingly become digitised, the fundamentals and thinking in health informatics are potentially key enablers to fast track and support welfare sector reform. As service design thinking focuses on the consumer and data blends across multiple service providers, data capture and information exchange are critical to success.

Join our facilitators and industry leaders at the start of the emerging agenda on health and welfare sector reform.

Health IT standards and interoperability

The use of standards supports almost everything we do and “ E or D-Health” is no exception.

Australia has been an active participant in IT standards development and implementation. This session is for those relatively new to Health Informatics, and the more experienced to discuss the standards landscape, where to look and who to ask. Traditionally being involved in standards is a place to be exposed to the tried and tested, the cutting edge and people who are making IT happen.

This session will be led by members of the health IT industry who have been involved with both development and implementation of national and international health standards.

Shifting the paradigm: Transitioning to true preventive care

As the US healthcare system evolves and moves from a fee-for-service model to value-based models, there is increasing pressure to fully exploit all avenues to support this transition. In this session, we explore some of the key solutions being used to optimise clinical outcomes, financial performance and maximise productivity and to realise our vision of healthcare delivery transformation which moves beyond the four walls of the clinic.

E-safety in Australia

E-safety has been identified globally as an important issue to address patient safety risks related to health-IT. To address this, HISA is developing a Professional Practice Standard on E-Safety.

This workshop will discuss this initiative and what healthcare managers, vendors, clinicians, technologists and health informaticians need to know to reduce risks arising from incorrect, missing, incomplete and delayed health information.

The User Xperience: The UX design of software in healthcare and its impact

In this workshop we will examine usability and user experience from both theoretical and very practical perspectives, through a series of diverse but interrelated talks and displays.

The session will be chaired by Associate Professor Chris Bain, founder of Health Tech UX, and will involve a range of key participants. Speakers will include Grahame Grieve, who will speak on how new technical paradigms can make large systems more interoperable and more accessible to users; and Bernard Schokman, an expert in UX Design will also share his experience and wisdom with us.

The session will appeal to consumers, clinicians and other users of software in healthcare. It will enable participants to better understand what usability and user experience are, and why sometimes these constructs appear elusive to them as end users. Most importantly, the workshop will supply users with knowledge to better equip them with a vision for improved system usability and better user experiences.
