Time is running out to participate in the National Digital Health Strategy survey which closes in November.
All Australians are invited to provide feedback which take approximately 15 minutes to complete.
During the survey you will be asked about how technology can make a difference and your experience with the healthcare system.
Australians are more digitally connected now than we have ever been before with nine out of 10 of us owning a smartphone and are accessing all sorts of online services and information.
Better use of data and technology is helping people live healthier lives, with great control and better access to important health information.
Griffith Local Health Advisory Committee is encouraging everyone to take part and recognise that now is your chance to influence the future of health in Australia through the feedback provided in this survey.
The results will be used to develop the draft strategy and implementation plan for governments, healthcare providers, consumers, innovators and the technology industry.
This is your opportunity to be a part of the solution. Improvements to healthcare in regional Australia are critical and digital health is the way forward.
The digital health strategy will start in 2022 and cover a five-year time frame. Australians have access to telehealth, electronic prescriptions, My Health Record and more, and what comes next will be up to us all.
