Health leaders and industry experts

committed to raising the profile of digital health innovation

and doing something about it

Creating a New Conversation

hisa Accenture

HISA is pleased to partner with Accenture on the Innovating Health thought leadership series.

Using round-table events as a catalyst, targeting topical health industry challenges, we aim to raise the profile of the digital health innovation agenda in healthcare. We seek to bring together health leaders with industry experts, challenging the zeitgeist with disruptive perspectives, harnessing our collective ideation and ultimately generating new solutions to stimulate sector change.

We are creating a new conversation. Never before has the Australian health system experienced such an imperative to change and the need to transform is vital for both system sustainability and improved population health.
