7-9 October 2014 - HIMAA NCCH 2014 National Conference - Double Tree by Hilton Esplanade Darwin, Northern Territory
The 2014 HIMAA and NCCH conference aims to explore how local and international health information professionals can transport eHealth initiatives and funding reform through the changing terrain with quality outcomes along the way. To achieve this, we will need to negotiate a range of on-road features, from clinical coding to data governance, financial management to performance reporting, eHealth standards development to implementation, workforce management to quality management, and terminologies to classifications.
At HIMAA/NCCH 2014, we will share how we are performing minor upgrades, pioneering new roads and forging highways to new destinations; broadcasting how we have overcome road blocks, minimized consumption and increased efficiency. We are all driving the information highway together!
Abstracts are called for conference contributions in four formats:
