Health Minister Gallagher to be on eHealth Trip

Gallagher explained that as far as e-health and design of health facilities go Scandinavia is considered as a leader. She was hoping to gain some pointers for the territory’s e-health investment that valued to about $90 million in this year’s budget passed recently. She is to visit one of Denmark’s hospitals that seems to be the most modern and progressive university hospital campuses, with a regional size similar to size of canberra. She would also meet with the Danish minister for Health and other health officials as well as the organisation responsible for Denmark’s e-health record, Sundhed.

Two major university hospitals as well as a demonstration centre for the incorporation of digital infrastructure into health facility design in Norway, are also a part of her visit list. It was noticed by her that these countries had seen several major hospital redevelopments recently, which he state could learn from, given its $1 billion Capital Asset Development Plan (CADP) which will undertake a complete rebuild of the ACT public health system. The Danish Health minister had visited Australia last year, following which this trip was planned.
