2 minute read

An upcoming webinar featuring international digital health leaders will reflect on what has been an astounding year of change for health technology globally.

Date: April 16  (April 15 in US and UK)

Time: 7:30am AEST


Join us for breakfast on April 16 to talk to health tech leaders and influencers from the US, the UK and Australia. The speakers will compare notes on how COVID-19 induced innovation has varied between the countries, why, and what lessons there might be between countries that can be effectively shared. 

The hour-long webinar will focus particularly on:

  • How telehealth has rolled out in each country, the context of each rollout, and how it has impacted interoperability in each country
  • How cloud-based platforming is evolving in each country, what speakers think are the basics for open platforms and which way each country is going
  • What are the ‘new’ basics for technology led better outcomes given what has occurred during COVID
  • Consumer facing progress, especially by Apple, versus back end platform and integration progress, especially by Microsoft, Google and Amazon
  • The specific challenges faced by each country, how those challenges have been faced, what we think we’ve learned and whether that might be a learning across countries
  • What COVID may have exposed as likely dead ends in interoperability thinking

We also look forward to hearing from you. The panel discussion will be followed by an audience Q&A, so you will have the opportunity to participate in the conversation.

  • Grahame Grieve– Founder of FHIR, global interoperability consultant and principal of Health Intersections, Aus
