Investing in Queensland's e-health industry
Providing improved health care through information and communications technology (ICT) is a challenging and highly cost-competitive task. E-health includes a range of systems or services that bring health care and ICT together. For example, a personally controlled electronic health record system allows patients to check their medical history online and give permission for doctors to access their records quickly and easily when they present for treatment.
Queensland has emerged as an e-health industry destination to compete with other Australian and international locations, offering access to high-speed bandwidth, trained personnel and a quality lifestyle.
Queensland boasts a collaborative and flexible health environment that supports the growth of ICT businesses. With strong support from the Queensland Government, the state is undertaking an exciting transformation process that presents opportunities across the diverse e-health industry.
