E-health leaders and decision makers to gather at HIC 2020

Australia’s digital health leaders, decision-makers and ‘forward-thinkers’ are set to gather at this year’s Health Informatics Conference (HIC).

The conference — to be held in Brisbane on 27–29 July — will showcase the “latest digital health research, case studies, trends and technology advances” while providing networking opportunities and hosting the gala dinner and awards night.

Confirmed speakers include Queensland Health Former Director General Michael Walsh; Acting Deputy Director-General and Chief Clinical Information Officer Professor Keith McNeil; and Chief Nursing and Midwifery Officer Dr Diane Skiba; as well as Australian Defence Force Surgeon General and Commander Joint Health Dr Sarah Sharkey.

Presentation submissions are still open, providing speakers the opportunity to share e-health successes, research; enter HISA’s academic and industry awards and partner with healthcare facilities, clinicians and vendors to present a case for ‘on the shop floor’ implementation, HIC’s website said.

Submissions close 20 March with successful applicants to be notified in the week of 4 May.
