HIMAA 2021: Victoria’s path on its five-year, five-phase digital health roadmap

It may have flown a bit under the radar during the COVID-19 pandemic, but Victoria has made a good start on its five-year digital health roadmap, which aims to improve the safety and efficiency of Victoria’s healthcare system.

The roadmap, released in August, includes five programs of work, of which three are well underway. These programs include existing initiatives such as the roll-out of a statewide unique patient identifier, as well as the plan for statewide sharing of clinical information, with a bill currently before the upper house to allow an amendment to the Health Services Act 1988.
