Panel

Addressing the workforce and skills gap: How do we attract people and skills to digital health?

Workforce is a hot topic now as all industries, in particular health care, look for workers to meet the current and expected demands as we reorganise after the last two years of the pandemic. These workforce issues are placing significant pressure on the health care system and the way services are delivered. Digital health and the digital transformation of the health care sector have been fast-tracked to prominence as a practical and strategic way to create efficiencies, augment treatment and care, and create new ways of working in the delivery of health services. Do we have the available digital health and informatics skills and knowledge within health care to deliver on these changes?

This panel session will discuss the question “where are all these skilled workers coming from?” How do we attract people to digital health as a viable career with purpose and meaning in helping us improve and change the way healthcare is delivered in the 21st century? Importantly, in this session, we will ask for perspectives from educators and the younger generation of students. What is important to them? What would attract them to a career enabling and supporting digital health change and health care transformation?

Panel

The future is accessible

The healthcare system is facing increasing challenges and many demands from multiple fronts. It has been a difficult time for all concerned. As we start to move past and live with COVID we need to challenge ourselves on health system change. Our theme for next year’s international MEDINFO 2023 event is – THE FUTURE IS ACCESSIBLE. With an international and national audience, we aim to inspire and lead discussion and implement actions where we are collectively building a health sector that is accessible, where data is not locked in silos, and where both clinicians and consumers can work together in partnership towards healthier lives, digitally enabled.

This panel at the end of the AIDH Sydney Summit will examine the topic of what we mean by an accessible health system. How can we challenge ourselves and the work we all do to make a difference towards a better-connected health system by July next year?
