eHealth continues to be one of the most talked about issues in Australian ICT.
In particular, the July 1st rollout of Patient Controlled Electronic Records requires adequate storage and control of large amounts of citizen identity data.
The National E-Health Transition Authority (NEHTA) is busily preparing for the rollout. Its Chief Technical Architect, Steve Burmester, is responsible for both enabling eHealth through Healthcare Identifiers, as well as securing identity data. He is also behind the National Authentication Service for Healthcare (NASH).
Steve Burmester will deliver a case study of eHealth at Australia's leading digital identity conference next month.
His presentation, entitled â€˜Reviewing the progress of eHealth in Australia', will open a fascinating session of digital identity implementation case studies at Digital ID World Australia 2012.
This conference will be held in Sydney on March 20th. To find out more, click here.
