The long-term journey towards health & wellbeing

In one of the first initiatives of Australia’s National Digital Health Strategy – Safe, Seamless, and Secure, the Australian Digital Health Agency has partnered with eHealth NSW and the Sydney Children’s Hospitals Network to establish the landmark National Children’s Digital Health Collaborative.

This innovative program was set up in April 2017, bringing together Australia’s leading experts in children’s health to identify a number of strategic digital health projects for funding by the Australian Digital Health Agency (ADHA). This transformative, national partnership aims to improve the health and wellbeing of all Australian children and young people

The Collaborative includes representatives from all jurisdictions, and across all disciplines. It consists of over 1,500 individuals, including consumers, clinicians, health and social care providers, researchers and ICT industry partners.
