Accreditation Panel

Panel Discussion - “Is it time for the medical software accreditation? A discussion on the pros and cons and next steps”


The medical software industry is a comparatively new industry and does not have accreditation for members of organisations like the MSIA which represents most medical software providers in Australia. The industry is growing and getting more professional and accreditation would provide a benchmark for our clients which currently use software based on need and their experience. We would like the discussion to provide the basis for a Whitepaper into the accreditation of our industry.

Private Health Insurance Panel

Panel Discussion - “ The Digital Eco-system in Australia – How can the Private Health Insurers and Medical Software Industry work more closely to make health as seamless as banking and give people greater autonomy and responsibility for their health?”


The call for Australians to take more responsibility for their health is bipartisan and makes sense when there are so many tools available. The Private Health Insurance industry is facing higher claims and still lacks the visibility that would be needed to intervene earlier and avoid hospital admissions that are in no ones interest. This panel will discuss where they see the digital health market going, what opportunities there are and whether that will lead to greatest cross industry collaboration.
