Shape Australia's e-safety professional practice standard
Take part in the consultation!
It is vitally important to reduce risks arising from incorrect, missing, incomplete and delayed health information. To contribute to this, HISA convened an expert group to begin the process of drafting an e-safety professional practice standard for Australia a year ago.
The draft professional practice standard is now ready for comment and consultation. HISA welcomes input from members, the health informatics workforce, clinicians and organisations to strengthen the ability of our digital healthcare systems to deliver and improve patient safety.
The consultation begins today and will continue
until Wednesday 20 April.

Discussions at HISA's recent webinar on the World Economic Forum 2016
David Rowlands discussed digitally enabled transformations and the future of healthcare from the World Economic Forum annual meeting for HISA's February webinar. Members' views aligned with the consensus at WEF on trends that healthcare services will face: growing demand, disruption and be increasingly dependent on data and knowledge.
During the webinar polls were used to ask our members about their thoughts on the health sector, health informatics and the future of healthcare. Here are some of their responses:
Over 60% of members believe that the health sector will be disrupted
Almost 70% believed that health informatics
will become even more important
An astounding result of 79% believe that
within the next decade, health informatics will bring new jobs
