The question for our August briefing is ‘How does the NSW healthcare ICT Strategy affect rural LHDs?

Kerri Ryan the Director of the Rural eHealth Program, eHealth NSW will bring us up to speed on what is happening in the more remote parts of NSW and how technology can help overcome the tyranny of distance.

The Rural eHealth Program is responsible for delivering the latest clinical software and technology to six Local Health Districts (LHDs) dotted throughout an area covering 650,000km2. LHDs spread across such vast expanses need fast, reliable access to information about the patients they care for and the ability to connect with each other.

Kerri will be joined by Andrew Pedrazzini from the Health NSW Infrastructure team and Sue Hanson from Little Company of Mary Health Care, for a Q&A panel where you will be able to ask questions not covered in the presentations or questions you have been wanting to ask, but haven’t yet had the opportunity.

We look forward to you joining us for this informative briefing, which will be followed by networking.
