As of last week, participants can now apply to attend a range of FHIR courses. FHIR (Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources) is a standard for exchanging healthcare information electronically and is becoming increasingly important as healthcare systems look to improve data interoperability and patient care. We believe that the skills and knowledge gained from these courses will be invaluable to your organisations, and we encourage you to send this information to anyone who would benefit from this opportunity.
We annually support a group of Children’s Campus staff through the Certified Health Informatician Australasia (CHIA) program, managed by the Australasian Institute of Digital Health.
We fund the certification and provide mentoring, study assistance and exam preparation. If you are interested in completing the CHIA program in 2023, read more via the link below and we’ll be in touch with more information.
The University of Melbourne’s Centre for Digital Transformation of Health is delivering a fellowship program called the Learning Healthcare System Academy. We have appointed Matt Farrugia, Evaluation Coordinator for Adolescent Medicine, as the 2023 Learning Healthcare System Academy Fellow for the Melbourne Children’s Campus, and will be supporting him through this year long program.
This program will run again in the next year so keep an eye out if you’re interested. If you’d like to read up on what the University’s fellowship entails, click on the link below.
