Shifting the dial on Australia’s transition to a digital health future
It’s the right of every Australian to expect a decisive and coherent plan to build the future of Australian health, and healthcare.
The rate at which society is becoming increasingly reliant on an accessible, interconnected health system leaves no room for complacency; we can’t entertain shortcuts or be stalled by inertia.
The future health and prosperity of the nation depends on our actions today.
The Australasian Institute of Digital Health 2022 Federal Election Statement outlines the digital health sector’s priorities for the Australian healthcare system.
The Institute is strongly urging all political parties and candidates in the upcoming federal election to commit to supporting investment in the digital enablement of healthcare, and in the capability required for our health system to be responsive in an increasingly interdependent health and aged care landscape.
It is imperative that we preserve the momentum gained from the rapid scaling of consumer centric, digitally enabled health solutions in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
As the leaders in healthcare delivered in a digital society, the Institute stands ready to work with any party that governs, to seize this unparalleled opportunity and ensure we leverage our current learnings to lead transformational change across the healthcare sector.
