Workshop 1

Health data management in your organisation – do you need to update your approach?

Presented by Gil Carter @gilcarter Principal, Voronoi

Managing the digital health data in a health organisation is becoming increasingly complex. With new legislation for data breaches now in force, patient consent and information management in the news, and connected health programmes working across organisations, many areas of health data management have changed in 2018.

For practice managers, PHNs and health information managers, these changes may affect how you manage patient information and may require updates to your business operations to handle. This hands-on workshop will discuss the data management challenges in the health environment, and will work through a quick self-assessment to let you see where your organisation might need to undertake further work.

Target audience:

Although the focus of the workshop is health administrators, there may be a broader demographic attracted. The expected attendees are:

  • Health informaticians
  • Staff from LHD / LHN / HHS / other state-based health organisations
  • PHN staff
  • General practice admins
  • Aged care providers
  • Allied health providers
  • Private health providers
  • Software vendors
  • Clinicians
  • Information enthusiasts

Learning objectives

  • Understand health data management in 2018
  • Learn about recent changes and what they may mean for your organisation
  • Self-assess your own organisation, with a scorecard to take away
