Digital technologies are driving a revolution that can deliver more personalised and precise health care to the people of Western Australia.
Through the use of mobile devices, video, web-based services and remote monitoring sensors, the patient is connected with clinicians, carers and health information in more direct and efficient ways.
Increasingly, healthcare services are being integrated with the way people live their lives. More than ever, the patient is empowered to manage their own health and wellbeing.
This strategy sets a vision of how digital innovation and technology will transform health services and the way they will be delivered to the people of Western Australia in the next decade.
The digital strategy places stakeholders – consumers, carers, clinicians and the general health workforce – at the heart of how it has been designed.
The strategy has a vision for a digitally-enabled public health system – from health promotion, protection and disease prevention to the acute clinical environment, as well as in corporate systems and processes.
