DIGITAL HEALTH INSTITUTE SUMMIT
Under the current healthcare system, information about patients is not recorded efficiently or effectively, clinicians can’t easily share information and there are numerous adverse events (preventable medical error is the third leading cause of death). While most of healthcare still operates with paper or disconnected systems, complex and critical information is captured through processes not readily communicated or broadly accessible.
The Institute’s purpose is to change that through a connected health system and a connected and digitally competent health workforce. There is growing acknowledgement that digital health is the key for realising high quality, safe and efficient care that delivers improved health outcomes. The Institute operates to address the challenge of harnessing the digital revolution to put consumers (patients) first and support clinicians to deliver the best possible healthcare for the public benefit.

Who can take part in Institute activities?
The Institute’s mission is to improve healthcare for all and so aims to have as many people as possible (whether they are members or not) participate in its programs, to go back to their workplaces, to share what they have learned and to put those learnings into practice so as to improve health outcomes for the community.
While membership of the Institute enables discounts on many activities, all our programs support our mission of public benefit. The sole purpose of the Institute is: Healthier lives, digitally enabled.
