10:00 AM Central Hume Partnership: Replacing Separate Patient Administration Systems in 7 Regional Hospitals with an Integrated System for Regional Victoria

The Central Hume Partnership (CHP), which goes live in July 2020, will integrate the patient administration systems of seven independent hospitals, each with their own identification number for patients. 

In this session, Jorge will focus on the implementation of this contemporary platform that leverages modern and secure protected cloud services, and enables the seven health services to deliver new and connected models of care across the region. Learn how this project has:

  • Overcome challenges of moving to a new integrated information platform and becoming digital instead of paper based
  • Simplified processes and provided a unified view of the patient, to make processes such as referrals much easier 
  • Redesigned workflows through real-time automation, to achieve cost savings and drive patient and clinician experience

3:30 PM PANEL DISCUSSION: Responding to the Next Generation of Cyber Security Threats

Cyber security risks are increasing at all levels of government, industry and the community—including in the healthcare sector. It is no longer a case of ‘if’ but ‘when’ something will go wrong. Healthcare services must act now to minimize the impact of future cyber-attacks.

Bringing together leaders from Victoria’s public sector and healthcare industry, this panel discussion will discuss leading approaches to the next generation of cyber security threats.

  • From a health service level, what training can be provided to increase cyber security resilience and industry collaboration?
  • What initiatives, training, tools and processes are being rolled out, specifically to the state of Victoria to respond to the growing threat of cyber security? 
  • What are the key challenges standing in the way of achieving a coordinated response? What plans are there to achieve concrete coordination?
  • What are the benefits of having a unified and centralised voice in response to cyber security threats? Why should health services collaborate rather than looking for individual solutions?
