More highlights revealed in countdown to MedInfo 2023

The Australasian Institute of Digital Health (AIDH) is in the process of putting together the final touches for MedInfo 2023, with less than a week to go until the major digital health learning event begins on 8 July. Sixty-three countries are now represented at the event, with registrations continuing to come in.

The institute has released several more MedInfo highlights:

Patient and consumer stories

Patient and consumer stories have been featured as part of AIDH’s conferences for over a decade. Seeking to make the event more accessible to those advocates who do not have the means to attend, in 2023 MedInfo launched its ‘Patients Included’ initiative, which provides the opportunity for consumer advocates to attend its conferences fully paid for by AIDH.

Out of the 27 applications received for MedInfo 2023, four MedInfo Consumer Scholars have been announced: Bruce Prince, Graham Tyson, Dan Petrovic and Joanne Marie Baumgartner. The Consumer Scholars will be at MedInfo 2023 for the duration of the event.

Fireside chats with Karen DeSalvo and David Feinberg

Two global leaders in healthcare technology will appear on stage in conversation with AIDH CEO Dr Louise Schaper during the Monday plenary session.

Dr Karen DeSalvo has been Google’s Chief Health Officer since 2019. Previously she served as the Acting Assistant Secretary for Health, National Coordinator for Health Information Technology and Director of the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC).

Dr David Feinberg was president and CEO of Cerner, now Oracle Health, where he led teams delivering tools and technology to improve the patient and caregiver experience. As a paediatric psychiatrist, David built his early career around helping children and families. He served as president and CEO of both UCLA Health and Geisinger Health.

Standards and interoperability

Panellists for the Day 2 morning session of the Standards and interoperability stream include Jeremy Sullivan (Australian Government Department of Health and Aged Care), Grahame Grieve (FHIR Product Director, HL7 Australia Board), Kate Ebrill (HL7au Board, Interoperability Lead CSIRO), Reuben Daniels (HL7 Au Board, Deputy FHIR Product Director) and Diego Kaminker (HL7 International). They will discuss accelerating standards development through an open community approach.

Innovative eHealth

On behalf of NSW Health, eHealth NSW will be a host partner at MedInfo 2023.

Through presentations and panel sessions, eHealth NSW will showcase the digital transformation of NSW Health and the exciting advances being made across the health system to meet the growing healthcare demands of NSW communities.

Dr Zoran Bolevich, Chief Executive of eHealth NSW and the Chief Information Officer for NSW Health, will be a keynote speaker.

Additionally, the NSW Health exhibition space on display from 10–12 July will spotlight innovative services and programs supporting outcomes that matter to patients.

The NSW Health exhibit will be located at Pavilion 1 in the Innovation Expo.

MedInfo 2023 will run from 8–12 July 2023 at the International Convention Centre Sydney (ICC). To register, visit: https://medinfo2023.org/register/.
