Message from the CEO
Where were you in '93? The HISA archives are brimming with stories and highlights from the early days of health informatics community life. As we celebrate our 25th anniversary year, it’s fascinating to look back on the work of our first members and those early conferences (and conversations) and to acknowledge that we stand on the shoulders of giants! Many people have contributed to the development of health informatics in Australia and we want to acknowledge as many of you as possible this year. Now we are asking you to draw on your earliest HISA memories and mementos and send us emails, stories and photos to help celebrate “25 years of HISA”. You could include pictures of early branch meetings, life in your health workplace, your ICT equipment, brands and of course anecdotes from your time at HISA. We plan to share this collection with delegates and exhibitors during HIC in Sydney (29 July – 1 August). Contact us on email when you are ready to take a walk down memory lane for HISA!
