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.
We will:

  • 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.
