Message from the CEO Are you ready to be on stage at Australias biggest digital health event HIC 2018? With only a few weeks until the deadline for submissions (14 March), we are calling on our knowledgeable members, industry partners and stakeholder organisations to bring out their research, case studies and stories. Sharing and collaborating across healthcare is critical if we are to achieve system change. Taking part in our annual conference is one of the many ways you can expose your work and contribute to the digital health movement. HISA members have always cut through the barriers and worked across all kinds of borders to share their knowledge. This year, as we celebrate our 25th anniversary, there has never been a better time to receive recognition and continue the work of those health informatics pioneers. Start planning your submissions now - we look forward to seeing you in Sydney.
