Message from the CEO
The 25th anniversary conference program for HIC 2018 highlights how far we have developed as one of the fastest growing peak bodies in healthcare. Our first conference was held before the growth of the Internet and personal computers. In 2018 we are addressing the topics impacting healthcare globally such as cybersecurity, quality and safety, as well as exploring innovative developments like chat bots, artificial intelligence, robotics and user experience. We had an outstanding response to the annual call for papers so we have more research and case studies being presented this year to shine a spotlight on cutting edge research developments and also to show real outcomes and to share lessons learned from healthcare’s digital journey. Everyone with a passion for healthcare will find HIC an inspirational conference for learning and connecting with Australian leaders in digital health. See you in Sydney soon!
