The 2010 Aged Care Informatics Conference will be an important opportunity for health and aged care professionals, educators, researchers, informaticians, government and industry to share their knowledge and experience, network with peers and be part of the movement to supporting health reform for Australia and the region.

'Advancing Informatics Research and Practice to Support Aged Care in Australia and the Region'

Demographic and economic forces and technology advances will continue to see resources channeled into research and applications of information technology to support healthy ageing and aged care services. Information technology will increasingly be used to support aged people in their homes and communities and to support the health and aged care workforce to service clients in their own homes and residential facilities. The focus of the 2010 conference will be the advancement in informatics research and application to support different types of aged care services, the integration of healthcare services across the continuum of care and health reform.

The conference will have a busy program of plenary speakers, presentations, panel discussions and workshops on local, state, national and international experiences, programs and research. It will highlight the advances made in the field, 'where are we at', 'what is needed' and 'where are we going'.
