Happy birthday AIDH!
Feb 24 is an important day for the institute as we celebrate our second anniversary. We made it through the pandemic and have come out the other side with a thriving digital health community ready to take on the significant opportunities and challenges in the near future.
In 2019, with shared strategies for workforce capacity building and the recognition of health informatics as a profession, the ACHI Council and the HISA Board agreed more could be achieved for the benefit of Australian healthcare by uniting to form a new organisation, and the Australasian Institute of Digital Health (AIDH) was born.
Over the past two years the Institute has launched the Women in Digital Health Leadership Program, formed InGeNA, launched a new executive pathway to fellowship and continued to advocate for the digital health workforce, and there is plenty still to come.
Thank you to all our fabulous members, the AIDH Board and the digital health community for supporting our work, and we look forward to continued advocacy and development of the digital health workforce. We have big plans for the next few years and hope you will come along with us.
