Advancements in digital technologies has been transforming the lives of many Western Australians over the past twenty years. Digital health is playing a larger role in not only how a person’s information is gathered, stored and accessed, but also how it relates to all aspects of the community, social and healthcare systems.

This includes the use of highly advanced and specialised tools for procedures, interactions between providers, how services and funding are allocated, the mediums and the available infrastructure used to deliver patient-centred treatment.

Our role is to simplify access to primary care by planning, guiding and directing investment towards important services. By using data and technology to assist us in improving and providing a more coordinated approach, we can better identify priorities, link services, and fund options for better primary care.

Embracing the powers of technology is streamlining our healthcare systems, aiding patient care and ensuring better informed treatment decisions. It is also helping address inequity  impacted by workforce shortages and long distances.

By partnering with local service providers, GPs and allied health professionals, we work to deliver better health, together.
