The COVID-19 pandemic has propelled technology adoption throughout all industries, with a large focus in the media on this rapid adoption in health. The increase in telehealth services has received much attention, yet the digitisation of paper records on COVID-19 wards, the electronic capture, reporting and analysis, of results, and the safe and secure communication of health information between clinicians have all changed how we use technology for health information. This seminar examines how COVID-19 and other drivers have shifted the trajectory for electronic health records and what this means for consumers and health professionals. Three Australian leaders in digital health will each present their unique perspective, followed by audience questions.
