Digital Transformation in Action: Queensland, Australia

COVID-19 has shown the world that digital health needs to play a central role in the delivery of health services, during and beyond the current outbreak - and it has emphasised the importance of assessing the current and future digital maturity of health systems and their effectiveness in delivering improved clinical, social and economic outcomes. 

The government of Queensland has launched an unprecedented initiative to benchmark the digital maturity of health services - using the HIMSS Digital Health Indicator - and evaluate the impact of digital health on improved outcomes. The collaboration - involving the University of Queensland, the Digital Health CRC, HIMSS and Queensland Health - could be a model for other governments and health systems who want to develop evidence-based blueprints for ‘whole of system’ digital transformation that delivers improved outcomes for all.
