HIMSS Australia Digital Dialogue Series 2020

Australia has one of the best health systems in the world – on any measure. It has been a pioneer in use of digital health to empower patients, citizens and the care professionals who serve them – promoting new approaches to virtual care, interoperability and co-ordinated care planning while empowering consumers with My Health Record and other initiatives. The Australia Digital Dialogue series explores the opportunities for digital health today to support the ongoing response to COVD-19 and the improvement of clinical, social and economic health and care outcomes. We travel virtually across the country to learn from system leaders how they are accelerating the digital health transformation and making it the new norm.

 


Tim Kelsey is senior vice president of HIMSS Analytics International supporting the digital empowerment of health and wellbeing around the world. He is an internationally regarded expert in the digital transformation of health and care. He has designed and successfully implemented national digital health strategies in two countries – in Australia, as Chief Executive of the Australian Digital Health Agency (2016-20) and in England, as NHS National Director for Patients and Information (2012-15). He was also National Information Director for health and care in England and Chair of the National Information Board and, before that, the British government's first Executive Director of Transparency and Open Data.
