The conference will focus on the current challenges confronting the aged and community care sector and the role that e-health solutions can make to enhancing the delivery of safe and quality care. Attending the conference will give you the opportunity to learn from others, globally, thru ACI 2013 on the use of data for positive client and organisational outcomes, therefore returning to your organisation with valuable insight to share; to contribute, joining a small but growing aged care special interest group, where opportunity exists for close networking between preeminent academics and industry informatics leaders; and to actively get involved in the SIG as election is held for SIG leadership and executive positions.
