Advanced healthcare through digitisation. Remote treatment options to enhance accessibility and combat barriers of cost. Organisational efficiency. The threat of cybercrime and how to win the arms race against ransomware and hackers. At its centre: a patient-centric systems-wide approach. Welcome to the HIT revolution.

Leaders in the industry will be contributing their expertise in what’s being billed as “HIT 3.0” at the HIMSS Australia eHealth Summit 2017 in Sydney on 31 May – 1 June, exploring latest developments, urgent challenges and innovative solutions aimed at leveraging technology to maximise patient care.

Russell Branzell, CEO and President of the College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME) will open the event with a keynote on the impact of technological advances and rising investments in electronic health records, clinical informatics and analytics, and how the best HIT executives are leading the way in creating innovation and transformational change.

The summit will also explore future trends in digital patient experience, cloud capabilities, telemedicine, medical devices, predictive modelling and patient empowerment, and the need for HIT professionals to be expert in change management and change leadership.

Technology-enabled medication management, whole genome sequencing, using patient portals and health records to ensure optimal delivery of care, and the creation of a greenfield and fully integrated hospital in Singapore will be the subjects of other sessions.

The hot-button, pulse-quickening topic of cybersecurity will take participants through a healthcare landscape of unprecedented risk, cyber threats, risk initiatives, the cost of security and how HIT professionals can educate their organisations and boards to view IT security as everyone’s responsibility.
