WHERE: Stamford Plaza, Melbourne

Melbourne breakfast is now full. The registration form will take your details for the waitlist.
Many thanks.

HISA in partnership with Microsoft invites you to attend an exciting breakfast series and networking opportunity. As medical technologies advance and pressures on health systems continue, more and more health providers are looking to the use of digital technologies to support our health systems globally.

Bringing insights into how technology is enabling healthcare to transform and adapt to these challenges and opportunities, we welcome back Dr Simon Kos, an Australian medical doctor and now Microsoft’s global Chief Medical Officer based in the US. Simon will discuss emerging trends and key observations on medical and health innovation with a focus on the use of technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), chat and medical internet of things (IoT).

We will highlight and examine a shining light in Australian digital health innovation in DoseMe, a decision support platform that leverages clinically validated pharmacokinetic drug models, patient characteristics, drug concentrations and genotype to guide dose optimisation. Charles Cornish, CEO, will talk about how DoseMe is making complex prescribing safer, how they are working with informatics and new technologies such as SMART on FHIR and their journey to become a highly successful global digital health company.

Lastly we hear from Dani Arousi, Senior Executive of Healthcare Innovation & Strategy, Allscripts, describing their approach to reducing adverse health outcomes with their interoperability platform, dbMotion, and how a primary health network is leading change in New South Wales.

Join and meet our visiting presenters for an in-depth discussion on medical and health innovation.
