Health informatics Conference

A Health informatics conference "HIC 2009" will be held in Canberra 19 to 21 August 2009. This covers the use of computers and telecommunications in healthcare. The Federal Health Minister Nicola Roxon has courageously revived the idea of a medical smart card for Australia. Given the failure of the previous government to do this, due to a poorly thought out project, it will make an interesting topic for discussion at the conference.
