3. Role of digital health in supporting co-ordinated personalised care

We are in an exciting phase of growth in the use of digital health, with the My Health Record set to extend to all Australians, an increasing focus on interoperability between health care services and greater patient involvement in the direction of their own health care.   Sydney North Primary Health Network provides ongoing support for GPs, Pharmacy, Aged Care, Allied Health, Specialists and other healthcare providers participating in the national digital health program.  Tools such as the My Health Record, shared care planning platforms and secure messaging have the potential to draw together patient information stored in disparate information systems to improve patient safety and provide more comprehensive, integrated care for our community.

Overview of the roll-out program in digital health in our region, including my health record

Outline the challenges in adopting new ways of delivering care and effective use of technologies and safer exchange of patient health information

Emerging technology enabling new digital channels for people to engage throughout their health journey

How do we bring this together in supporting coordinated personalised care?

13:30 Transforming Patient Care and Reducing Hospital Re-Admissions By Using Smart Sensors and Wearables to Enable Monitoring of Patients From Home
Health smart homes support digital enabled living based on monitoring the activities and health status of their occupants, using a variety of sensors and wearables.  They can offer solutions for assisting in achievement of many different health circumstances such as preventive health measures, chronic disease management, postoperative care, rehabilitation and ageing in place. There are many challenges in building health smart homes, beyond the provision of the basic infrastructure: these include system challenges such as software architecture, integration and safety; and data challenges such as data management, pattern recognition and subject personalization.  This presentation will describe the care landscape within which health smart homes may be seen as providing new models of care and will discuss the challenges and some approaches to their resolution.

14:00 Unstructured Data Analytics of Patient & Other Medical Record Types
Detailed content management and the ability to undertake semantic searching of EMRs and other unstructured record types to find information and understand relationships between documents and data elements contained in all hospital systems is now possible using graph-data technology in conjunction with an organisation’s Electronic Document and Records Management Systems (EDRMS).

Through the use of graph-data technology it is possible to analyse and search very large databases of unstructured data like medical/patient records, lab and pathology reports, admission and discharge reports, clinical notes, prescription/medication records, etc. Structured data in Relational Database Management Systems (RDBMS) can also be combined in these analyses and searches, thereby permitting the merging of structured and unstructured data that enables complex search and analysis using semantic or ‘natural language’ approaches. The technology can be applied seamlessly over the top of most existing IT systems in a hospital avoiding disruption to critical production and operational systems. It can also integrate with existing BI and Analytics solutions, thereby providing uplift in this area, increasing the organisation’s overall digital capabilities.

A model will be presented of graph-data technology and how it can be used in hospital settings to significantly increase a hospital’s digital capability and efficiency.
