Message from the CEO
Members promote your health informatics research! One of our goals at HISA is to build capacity in the health workforce. We want to empower health professionals in all areas by providing them with the knowledge and information they need to be equipped for the digital health future. One of our initiatives is the HISA Journal Club –a platform to showcase health informatics research. We launched the site to profile research by members in all areas of digital health and to provide a channel for your brilliant research to be promoted and read by more people on the ‘shop floor’ of healthcare. The Journal Club is a ‘magazine style’, plain-English blog post that is designed to connect with a diverse healthcare audience and illustrate why the research is important. There are already some great items on the site including today’s post, “Pioneering digital disruption: Australia’s first integrated digital tertiary hospital”. We want you to be part of this new forum so email the HISA Journal Club and get started!
