Call for Papers – Industry

Industry presentations provide delegates with practical insights into how digital health care initiatives are being used to transform the health system and improve patient outcomes.
The aim is to provide a platform for exposure to novel concepts/design and new or emerging innovations.

Abstracts are invited which showcase the practical application of the latest digital health technologies in the health sector.

These abstracts are often case studies and represent an excellent opportunity to discuss hands-on experience covering audience questions such as:

  • What were the business needs?
  • What solutions and investments were required?
  • What were the critical design considerations?
  • What skills and experience were required?
  • What are the outcomes to date?
Submissions may explore the challenges of implementation or discuss the benefits and transformative effect these new innovations are having on existing business models and systems.

Submissions from Industry should include a provider/user participant as a speaker.

Presenting at HIC is a fantastic way to partner with healthcare facilities, clinicians, vendors and others to present a compelling case for the value of ‘on the shop floor’ implementations and issues and to get feedback from your peers.

Submissions are encouraged across a range of healthcare settings including public and private hospitals, nursing, primary care, indigenous, aged and community care and multi-cultural services.

Provocative Panel Submission

Provocative Panels bring together a group of people to discuss a topic important to digital health. Panels are an excellent way to generate debate, raise new and interesting issues at HIC, and hear multiple points of view on a topic.

We encourage panel proposers to identify prospective panellists who can not only share their expertise on a particular topic but also represent diverse perspectives, disciplines, methods, and approaches. Each panel should be facilitated by a moderator who will guide the conversation among panellists and engage the audience.

While paper sessions provide detailed discussions of recently completed work, panels provide an opportunity to hear about what is on the horizon – or what is already here but not recognised, acknowledged or discussed.
A panel typically features 3 – 5 panellists providing a brief presentation or making a position statement, followed by at least 30 minutes of discussion, active audience interaction and participation. Panellists are thought leaders in their relevant field.

X
Provocative Panel Guidelines

Each proposal should include an abstract submitted as a PDF (maximum five pages) which includes:

  • Overview of the panel’s topic and its relevance to the AIDH community
  • Proposed structure and format of the panel, including how panel organisers will:
    – encourage interaction with the audience
    – ensure the panel is accessible to all participants
  • One-paragraph biographies of all panellists including name, affiliations and expertise
  • Technical requirements
Criteria for Successful Panels

The best panels provide opportunities for audience participation. We particularly encourage proposals for panels that:

  • Discuss relevant, important and critical topics
  • Engage the audience and provoke discussion
  • Bring several disciplines, methods or approaches into productive conversation
  • Represent a diversity of individuals who can bring multiple perspectives to the topic

We also encourage submitters to not only form panels with close colleagues who share similar points of view but to reach out to prospective panellists from across the AIDH community and beyond.

Please note: Panel organisers and panellists are responsible for their conference registration fees
