Information Enabled Care and Services

Health workers use information and data to inform and evaluate decision making and to enhance and connect services through digital health technologies

It is essential to understand the importance of trusted digital data to better connect service and care beyond one’s own role or organisation. This is applicable across all roles and settings, and is vital to the effective delivery and development of digital health solutions.
