Message from the CEO As HISA continues to advocate on the issues most keenly impacting the digital healthcare community, its clear we are always best led and informed by our knowledgeable members. We like to hear from you and we need your expertise. Through consultation, we can gather your views on the most wide-ranging topics and wicked problems. Our communities of practice are just one way we can harness the specific interests of our members. Cybersecurity is high on the list and recently we released the findings from our 2017 survey. The second survey is now open for your input. We want to understand what has changed, what has improved and what is yet to be done to safeguard health information. The 2018 cybersecurity surveywill close 15 September so please take the time to complete it and ensure we are creating valuable intelligence for the whole digital health community.

HISA Webinar - Overcoming the challenge of clinical documentation using speech recognition - Sponsored by Nuance
Tuesday 11 September @ 4:00 pm
Clinical speech recognition has a key role to play in reducing the burden of clinical documentation in diverse clinical settings in the acute hospital sector. This presentation describes the impact of introducing clinical speech recognition integrated into the EMR within two distinctly different specialties; a Renal outpatient clinic and an Emergency Department (ED) at two National Health Service (NHS) hospitals in England.
The presentation describes the lessons learned in implementing SR and the outcomes achieved in doing so and there will be a short demo of SR within the EMR.
The pursuit of digital health systems, particularly EMR, has been gaining traction in most states and the commonwealth. The recent introduction of My Health Record (MHR) opt-out poses many interesting questions and challenges that impact the course of Australias digital health adoption. In this interactive, workshop-style forum, an eminent and diverse group of panellists will explore the various implications of My Health Record adoption, including:
What do clinicians expect from MHR?
What do patients need from MHR?
How will regulators ensure information safety and security?
What role do developers play in an environment with over 20 million people enrolled to use MHR?
How do healthcare providers deal with gaps in medical record completeness?
