AIIA Qld Council hosts eHealth luncheon

An eHealth luncheon will be hosted by AIIA Queensland Council this month on 19 October.

Warren Prentice, Chief Technology Officer of eHealth Queensland, will be the special guest speaker.

With health currently consuming $16.6 billion of the state budget, eHealth Queensland represents the largest use of government funds, and is coupled with expenditure that continues to rise annually to meet an ever-increasing demand.

Prentice will identify how different technologies and the required ICT infrastructure foundations can support improved clinical outcomes, to meet the needs of Australia’s growing and ageing population.

Prentice has a sound foundation of Australian military service, government and commercial leadership skills, and a unique balance of expertise required to deliver large digital and organisational transformation initiatives. The AIIA Luncheon presents an outstanding opportunity for attendees to learn from this broad experience and depth of knowledge.

“In my role as CTO, I have operational responsibility for state-wide community, clinical and corporate ICT services provided by the department. This is across an expansive geography of 1.8 million square kilometres, and supports a population of 4.69 million people and additional visitors to the state,” said Prentice.

“I have a passion for the provisioning of secure, sustainable and scalable ICT services to digital consumers everywhere and am a keen advocate for digital equity for communities in remote and regional areas across Australia. I look forward to sharing what I have learnt about how to implement large digital technology programs at the upcoming AIIA Luncheon in Queensland.”

Join the panellists as they explore what the state of health could look like in 2025, and what changes in practices and government policy would be required. For further information and to register for this event, visit the AIIA website.

Panel members at the luncheon will include: David Kempson, Group Chief Digital Officer at Mater Health Services; Damien Green, Executive Director Digital Transformation and Chief Information Office at Gold Coast Hospital and Health Service; and Cathy Ford, Chief Information Officer at Metro North Hospital and Health Service.

The luncheon will be held on Friday, 19 October 2018 at Stamford Plaza Brisbane. Registration commences at 11.30 am.
