Australia has one of the best health systems in the world – on any measure. It has been a pioneer in use of digital health to empower patients, citizens and the care professionals who serve them – promoting new approaches to virtual care, interoperability and co-ordinated care planning while empowering consumers with My Health Record. The Australia Digital Dialogue series explores the opportunities for digital health today to support the ongoing response to COVD-19 and the improvement of clinical, social and economic health and care outcomes. We travel virtually across the country to learn from system leaders how they are accelerating the digital health transformation and making it the new norm.
“The right information, to the right person, at the right time, in the right place” drives the digital strategy vision & purpose in South Australia. It aims to deliver a comprehensive and sustainable health system where citizens are at the centerpiece of the design process to ensure better integration for both patients and providers.
