Why

The possibilities of a digitally enabled health system – better outcomes for consumers and clinicians – are very real to the clinicians, analysts, researchers, academics and health innovators who form Australia’s digital health community.

HISA members lead by example in their workplaces, from hospitals and health services to community and primary care. Today tech-savvy doctors, nurses, midwives, surgeons, allied health professionals and other clinicians are talking to health IT, management and decision-makers at all levels about ways to deliver healthcare in the digital age.

HISA members have a wish list: Less “data” and more “information”; quality analytics and clinical decision support; seamless electronic health records; integrated care delivered cost-effectively; an empowered clinical workforce and empowered, connected healthcare consumers.
