Digitisation goes beyond a digital interface

Whilst simply changing a form from paper to digital provides a range of improvements in areas such as user experience and data quality, the real gains in efficiency are realised by streamlining the processes that relate to the data being captured. Panellists will discuss the digitisation journey they have been on and provide advice on best practise approaches.

Building the national online covid vaccine booking system ecosystem – a prototype for the future of digital health

Healthdirect Australia works with the Australian Government Department of Health and the health technology sector to build the online journey to determining eligibility for the COVID-19 vaccine and making an online appointment. In this presentation we share insights from our involvement in three key areas:
  • Capability: optimising existing infrastructure to build the national online booking system for vaccine appointments, including an eligibility checker, service finder and real-time appointment booking
  • Collaboration: working with governments and private enterprise in the health tech industry to build a safe, secure online user journey to a vaccination appointment - a prototype for digital healthcare
  • Challenges: managing inter-agency dependencies, unpredictable scale, varied tech specs across industry, distributed working arrangements and ensuring a future-proofed, flexible and iterable end-to-end design

Oakley Kwon
Digital Transformation

Serving vulnerable members in society with digitally enabled systems

  • Oakley explores three case studies where digital technology and enablement has helped further the interests of vulnerable groups in society, including enabling better collection of data for the end of life care of First Nations people, assisting victims of child sex abuse with special needs in giving their best evidence by matching them with social and health workers suited to their needs, and enabling better evidence collection from victims through the use of 3D animal avatars.
  • At the core of all good digital products is a clear understanding of the problems specific to the target audience, and a design process that champions human-centred design and co-design practices.
  • The case studies suggest that augmented systems that provide equal weight to the importance of humans and technology are likely to deliver better results for more vulnerable members in society, where technology alone is not enough.
