THE GREAT DEBATES
AUDIENCE MODERATED POLICY HACK
Moderated by a Big C consultant, and with an expert panel, the audience will attempt a short policy/white paper on the fly that brings focus to a difficult but important issue facing digital health. This session: a roadmap for establishing a viable regime for standards and governance of healthcare data sharing among healthcare providers, tech vendors and government.
A unique opportunity to hear from – and directly question – Australia’s critical thinkers, influential clinical and technology decision makers who are transforming the healthcare landscape. Our new program features three 'great debates', an audience participation policy hack, left of field medical story tellers, and an innovation talent beauty show. You will learn. But mostly you will have fun.
