Better connections: Your health, your say

Australian Digital Health Agency
Closes: 14 June 2019Consultations & Surveys

Currently, most digital health systems are unable to talk to each other. Information collected about a patient – for example in a hospital or a GP practice – often can’t be made available to others involved in a patient’s care.

The Australian Digital Health Agency is facilitating a national conversation to develop a blueprint for a more modern, digitally connected health system. The Better Connections: Your health, your say conversation aims to capture the expectations and priorities of a better-connected healthcare system. The outcome of these consultations will be a set of national standards that will provide a roadmap to industry partners and government for the future development and implementation of digital health technologies and system connectivity.

The Interoperability Program seeks to connect patient information from multiple systems and sources to enhance clinical outcomes, improve healthcare delivery and improve patient experiences within the health system.

Complete the survey to have your say on what you want, need and expect from a modern, interconnected healthcare system that is focused on improving the health and wellbeing for all.

This feedback will help to identify new ways to deliver more effective and efficient health and care and guide the development of the National Health Interoperability Roadmap.

In addition to the surveys, the ADHA also welcome written submissions, either by email to yoursay@digitalhealth.gov.au or to L25/175 Liverpool Street, Sydney NSW 2000.

The survey is open until Friday 14 June 2019.
