650 word overview

This stream will 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. 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.

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?

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.

Thank you
We would like to thank all of our reviewers for their contribution to the program, their role is vital and we appreciate their time and effort.
