Excitement is building among the health data gurus of Australia who are gathering in Sydney this week for # HDA19 . Originally one of our most targeted events, HDA has always celebrated the data nerds whose work creates the data we need to deliver high quality care right across the health system. Today #HDA19 is shaping up to be a # digitalhealth # crowdpleaser . What a program!

Australian artificial intelligence experts Prof Enrico Coiera , from Macquarie University, and Prof Toby Walsh from UNSW, will be talking about the role data will play in artificial intelligence in healthcare. Clinical geneticist A/Prof Zornitza Stark , from Murdoch Children’s Research Institute, will share her work on genomic and phenotypic data. We will learn from the customer perspective when we meet Dr Ian Oppermann , CEO and Chief Data Scientist, NSW Department of Customer Service. Every year, the content we share across the digital health community becomes richer and more relevant. Health data is the currency of the future health system. There is no better time to get involved and learn how it is shared, used and most importantly, protected.

Hope to see you in Sydney this week.  👋
