Role of IT in health, Canberra, 9 March

The ACS is hosting "The Patient Journey - What role for IT?" by Dr George Margelis, Industry Development Manager, Digital Health Group Intel Australia in Canberra, 9th March 2010 (BRISBANE 17 March):
"George took on the role of Industry Development Manager for Intel's new Digital Health Group in November 2005. For him it was an opportunity to take an active role in changing the way healthcare was delivered in Australia. Prior to moving to Intel Australia he has been very active in the healthcare informatics arena as the CIO of a private hospital group in Sydney, manager of an innovative software development group developing solutions for healthcare providers and consumers, and board member at the state and national level of the Health Informatics Society of Australia.

He is a registered medical practitioner having graduated from the University of Sydney. He is also a registered optometrist and holds a graduate degree in E-Business from the University of Southern Queensland. He ran a successful software company during the heady days of the late 80's and early 90's and has been an active computer enthusiast from the late 70's when he acquired his first PC, a Sinclair Z80."
ps: ACS hosted a talk on ICT in Health Delivery in the 21st Century in 11 November 2008. Two days later I was taken by ambulance to Canberra Hospital, with the staff finding me one of the best informed patients they have ever had. ;-)
