Health-e-Nation conference coming to Melbourne in April
To be held at the RACV Club in Melbourne, CHIK Services' Health-e-Nation conference returns in its ninth year with the theme, "Investing in Australia’s Health: It's everyone’s business."
Confirmed speakers for the conference include Jane Halton, Secretary, Department of Health and Ageing; Peter Fleming, CEO of the National E-Health Transition Authority; Marianne Shearer, CEO of the Melbourne East General Practice Network; and Rachel de Sain, Director, Flaxworks.
The event will also feature international speakers, including Chai Chuah, National Director, National Health Board, New Zealand Ministry of Health; Dr Rina Yahalom, Deputy CEO, Kaplan Medical Center, Clalit Health Services, Israel; and US presenters Claire McCarthy and Douglas Eastman, who will be providing insights in their capacity as 'sustainable change and organisational effectiveness experts'.
In addition to presentations and panel sessions, the conference will incorporate an industry exhibition. In contrast with many larger events, industry exhibits will be collocated within the conference hall, to provide what the organisers are calling an 'inclusive and intimate' setting designed to promote the involvement of vendors in conference discussions.
The conference proper is to be held on Thursday, 7 April, and will be followed by a networking reception and invitational CEO dinner.
Two days of related events will flank the conference, including an invitational CIO meeting and a formal dinner to be held on Wednesday, 6 April. Facilitated by Claire McCarthy and Douglas Eastman, a series of workshops will be held on Friday, 8 April, concluding the three day event program.
Further information about the conference and the associated events is available at the event's website.
