Oculo’s CEO Dr. Kate Taylor has been chosen to serve on the clinical and technical advisory committee of the Board of the Australian Digital Health Agency (ADHA). She was one of 300 applicants who responded to a call for people to support it in driving the digital transformation of Australian healthcare.
The ADHA’s goal for the advisory committees is to drive transparency and trust in “achieving the vision of digital transformation by working in partnership with the healthcare sector, industry and consumers.”
Speaking of the appointment Dr. Taylor said, “I’m deeply honoured to be selected to serve the Australian people on the fundamentally personal and critical issue of e-health. In the past, studies shown that having (or not having!) a good GP influenced longevity. In the future, the issue will move to having good health care professionals, who share health data, to really share health care. Better communication translates to better care. Australia should be a world leader in digital health.”
The ADHA commenced operations in July 2016.
