eHealth Queensland CTO Warren Prentice to speak on Digital Transformation at AIIA Luncheon

How technology, business models and treatment regimes can help meet the needs of Australia’s growing population

Brisbane, Australia – 9 October -- The Australian Information Industry Association (AIIA), the nation’s peak representative body for the ICT sector, is delighted to announce that the AIIA Queensland Council will host an eHealth Luncheon on Friday, 19 October, with special guest speaker Mr Warren Prentice, Chief Technology Officer of eHealth Queensland.

With health currently consuming $16.6 billion of the State Budget, eHealth Queensland represents the largest use of government funds, and is coupled with expenditure that continues to rise annually to meet an ever increasing demand. In Warren’s address, he will identify how different technologies and the required ICT infrastructure foundations can support improved clinical outcomes, to meet the needs of Australia’s growing and ageing population.

Warren has a sound foundation of Australian military service, government and commercial leadership skills, and a unique balance of expertise required to deliver large digital and organisational transformation initiatives. The AIIA Luncheon presents an outstanding opportunity for attendees to learn from his broad experience and depth of knowledge.

Commenting on his upcoming appearance at the eHealth Luncheon, Warren said: “In my role as CTO, I have operational responsibility for state-wide community, clinical and corporate ICT services provided by the department. This is across an expansive geography of 1.8 million square kilometres, and supports a population of 4.69 million people and additional visitors to the State.

“I have a passion for the provisioning of secure, sustainable and scalable ICT services to digital consumers everywhere and am a keen advocate for digital equity for communities in remote and regional areas across Australia. I look forward to sharing what I have learnt about how to implement large digital technology programs at the upcoming AIIA Luncheon in Queensland.”
