On the Monday 10 July as part of #MEDINFO23, 40+ senior conference delegates attended the Westmead Health Precinct and Hospital Tour. The tour was hosted and coordinated by the Institute and Western Sydney Local Health District (WSLHD) and sponsored and supported by Oracle Health and Business Events Sydney.
Attendees were greeted by the Chief Executive Graeme Loy, who provided an overview of the vision and update on their work to date. The group were then led to different tours, Stream 1: Technology enhanced models of care and device integration, Stream 2: Education and innovation in training and Stream 3: Precinct model and external partnerships. The tour highlighted the strategic approach to investment in Western Sydney and the importance of major sites like the hospital precinct in stimulating and advancing the area.
Attendees to the tour were a mix of international and national leaders, educators, researchers, and industry representatives involved in digital health and informatics. It was an important part of MedInfo 2023 and was a positive experience for all. If you wish to find out more about the Precinct and partnering options you can contact the Precinct team directly.
