COVID-19 and telehealth from the frontlines

The Australasian Institute of Digital Health (AIDH) is holding its inaugural virtual conference at the end of April, fittingly focusing on how telehealth is being deployed to fight the coronavirus pandemic by those on the frontlines.

The day-long conference will hear from Healthdirect CEO Karen Borg on Australia's telehealth response to COVID-19, along with Télémédecine 360 medical director Robin O’Hannessian on France's public health response and PinkTech Design CEO Kanav Kahol on India's experience.

In the primary care sector, Melbourne-based Outcome Health's director of research Chris Pearce will discuss a data driven approach to COVID-19 for general practices, and Jindabyne Medical Practice nurse Jackie Eyeles will discuss how a Snowy River rural practice went from 100 per cent face to face consultations to 90 per cent telehealth.

Technologies discussed include the Australian COVID-19 dashboard from the CSIRO's Australian eHealth Research Centre's health intelligence team leader Sankalp Khanna, and digital avatar developer Soul Machines' general manager Ben Hanna.

The From the Frontlines conference will be hosted on Zoom on Friday, April 24. The cost is $200 for AIDH members and $250 for non-members.
