As digital healthcare is set to transform the way health care is delivered and experienced in rural and remote locations across Queensland, this is your opportunity to provide advice on the strategy and speak up for your communities about what matters most.
eHealth Queensland is seeking two consumer representatives to join the membership of the Rural and Remote Digital Healthcare Committee to provide advice on the priority and selection of initiatives for the digital enablement of rural and remote healthcare across Queensland. eHealth Queensland enables the delivery of health services to the community, supporting the information technology needs of the State’s 16 Hospital and Health Services and the Department of Health.
The Rural and Remote Digital Healthcare Committee (The Committee) is the statewide peak body that will provide strategic advice on initiatives that use digital/technology to help clinicians as they carry out their jobs and help consumers to access healthcare when and where they need across Queensland. This includes initiatives in the Digital Strategy for Rural and Remote Healthcare.
Committee membership includes Chief Executives from Rural and Remote Hospital and Health Services, representatives from Primary Health Networks, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Division, Office Rural and Remote Health, chairs from the Rural and Remote Clinical Network and executive leadership from eHealth Queensland.
As a consumer or carer representative, you will attend all Steering Committee meetings and provide the consumer perspective, advice and experience. You will have at least 12 months’ committee experience either at the Hospital and Health Service or Statewide level and have accessed healthcare whilst living (or have recently lived or cared for someone) within a rural and remote location.
