The theme of the forum is E-Health Landscapes. The full day program brings together e-health experts from across WA who will take participants on a journey through the Australian e-health landscape. The morning session is tailored towards the big picture issues (federal and state strategy discussions) and the afternoon devoted to excellent and innovative e-health projects originating in Western Australia. The conference will highlight issues of particular local significance, including the future of Western Australian health information and technology, as well as examining the role of e-health at a national and state level.
