Message from the Chair Michael Walsh
On behalf of the new Board, I invite you to become a founding Member or Fellow of the Australasian Institute of Digital Health. The vision of the Institute “Healthier lives, digitally enabled” reflects a new broader focus for digital health. We will be bringing together the leaders, innovators and forward thinkers of healthcare to collaborate with citizens, patients and carers across health and community care. Healthier lives, digitally enabled centres around our ethos of quality, accessible and equitable person-centred healthcare delivered in a digital world. As our new whitepaper says: Digital health is more than technology. Digital health IS health.
“Digital disruption tends to start slowly but accelerate quickly. It is fast approaching in the form of digital health. Now is the time to explore the nature of the issue and ensure readiness. Digital health is not about technologies. It is about health.”
