The Tasmanian Government released the Our Healthcare Future Immediate Actions and Consultation Paper on 6 November 2020.
Our Healthcare Future is the next step of the Tasmanian Government’s long-term reform agenda. It is about delivering the right care, in the right place and at the right time.
Development of a Strategy to support a digital health transformation program is a key improvement area of the Our Healthcare Future reform agenda.
The Department of Health (the Department) is undertaking a Request for Tender (RFT) to engage a supplier to develop a Digital Strategy for the Tasmanian Health System (the Digital Health Strategy).
The Digital Health Strategy will articulate what digital investments Tasmania will make to create a digitally enabled, patient-centric, health system.
The Strategy will be clinically led and follow a proven methodology, in partnership with Information and Communications Technology (ICT), and Information Management (IM) professionals. The broad consultation approach will also include peak bodies, other key delivery partners and healthcare consumer representatives.
