The Australian Health Policy Institute at the University of Sydney will host a forum on 23 March sponsored by Intel’s Digital Health Group & Cerner titled E-health: Will it save the health system?’.
E-health experts from round the world including Richard Granger, Director General NHS IT: /NHS National Program for IT and Health Policy, Jeremy Bonfini, Worldwide Digital Health Policy Manager at Intel Corporation, Ben Wilson, Director of Healthcare IT for Intel’s Digital Health Group, Dr George Margelis, Industry Development Manager for Intel’s Digital Health Group and Dr Simon Kos, Physician Executive, Cerner Corporation will describe the current state of E-Health and whether it is really revolutionising the way healthcare is delivered. The seminar will explore whether Australia should develop its own E-Health policy and the steps required to make this happen.
It has been predicted that E-Health will revolutionise the delivery of healthcare, making it more effective and efficient and saving the health system from collapse. There have been many E-Health projects implemented around the world, and there is now strong evidence that E-Health can make a positive difference, not only at a national level, but also at the institution and individual levels.
The seminar will be hosted by Professor Stephen Leeder, Director, Australian Health Policy Institute at the University of Sydney and Co-director, Menzies Centre for Health Policy.
