Government Productivity Commission Research into Digital Technology in Healthcare

This month the Australian Government Productivity released a research paper that considers the role digital technology can play in improving patient outcomes and enhancing productivity in healthcare. Drawing on case studies, the paper finds that better integrating digital technology into everyday practice could save more than $5 billion a year and ease pressure on our healthcare system through electronic health and medical records, telehealth, remote care, and artificial intelligence. The research paper identifies that governments can help unlock the savings from digital technology by realising the potential of health information, taking healthcare to the consumer, and harnessing the power of AI.
