Digital Health

Our digital health priorities are aligned with Australia’s National Digital Health Strategy 2018 – 2022 and can be seen in our Digital Health Strategy.

Digital health is the electronic management and sharing of health information to deliver safer, more efficient, better quality healthcare. Information sharing across the full care continuum has significant benefits for people, their healthcare providers and the healthcare system which results in improved patient safety and health outcomes, increased adherence to treatments, health system efficiencies in time savings for clinicians, a reduction in unnecessary duplication of investigations and avoided hospital admissions.

We are continually striving to support the improvement of the efficiency, effectiveness and quality of health services by facilitating the adoption of these technologies, providing digital health education and support, and fostering collaborations among the health professionals in the region.

Our Practice Support Team assists primary health care providers to understand and use digital health solutions in a meaningful way.
