We understand that health strategy and digital health are now one
and the same. Fit-for-purpose health service delivery depends on
access to high quality information. Information management and
digital technologies will transform the way we work, where and
how we provide services, how patients interact with us and how we
integrate clinical care with research and education.
In collaboration with our partners, implement our eHealth
strategies and investment plans so we have the information
systems and services we need.
In collaboration with our University partners, data sciences will
be a core component of healthcare planning, design and delivery.
Build our health informatics capability by establishing clinical
information leadership roles and embedding health informatics in
our management training and leadership development.
