The senior management team from the Office of the Chief Information Officer is the team leading out on the delivery of the eHealth strategy which is focused on improving population wellbeing, health service efficiencies and economic opportunity through the use of technology enabled solutions.
eHealth is essentially about the digitisation of health services and processes so that the data about the right patient is available in the right place and at the right time to ensure safe and efficient provision of care services. eHealth offers a significant opportunity and is fundamental to providing new and integrated models of care.
It's about helping healthcare professionals save time and save lives. It’s also enabling patients, and the people who use our services, to experience better care. Our vision is to create a patient-centred, digitally integrated healthcare system and as we move towards this we are starting to see more and more benefits.
