24 Oct | CHICC Expert Workshop: Connecting Healthcare - Interoperability Standards and Implementation

October 24, 2023

Interoperability in digital health enables diverse information technology systems and software applications to communicate, exchange data, and use the information that has been exchanged. It serves as the foundational framework that enables healthcare systems, devices, and applications to work together cohesively, ultimately leading to more efficient, cost-effective, and patient-centred care.  Increasingly, investors and customers are mandating healthcare IT innovations to be interoperable with existing systems. That’s why throughout this workshop, we will explore the challenges, opportunities, and best practices that are shaping the future of healthcare in an increasingly interconnected and data-driven world. This workshop will also serve as a networking hub, providing you with the opportunity to connect with like-minded professionals and foster collaborations that can drive the digital health industry forward.

What will you learn?  

  • What is interoperability and why is it important  
  • What communication standards exist for health IT  
  • What interoperability initiatives are of national importance in Australia  
  • How to connect to existing EMRs - learnings from a real-world example  
  • Challenges  

Who are the speakers?

The two presentations and the panel session will be led by experts in the field, including:

  • Vivek Krishnan, CTO, Alcidion  
  • Mark Braunstein, Visiting Scientist, Australian eHealth Research Centre CSIRO and Professor of the Practice Emeritus, School of Interactive Computing. Georgia Tech 
  • Janet Fox, Digital Health BD & Commercialisation, CSIRO
