Joint CommuniqueAustralian Health Ministers have agreed to revised operating arrangements for the Australian Health Information Council (AHIC).
Set up by Health Ministers in July 2003, AHIC works closely with the National Health Information Group in to increase the effectiveness of IT investment in the health sector.
The revised operating arrangements for AHIC are based on an independent review of the Council commissioned by the Australian Government. These arrangements will enable AHIC to focus on providing strategic advice to Health Ministers about the more effective and efficient use of information management and information communications technology (IM&ICT) in the health sector.
The Council will continue to be chaired by Professor Andrew Coats, Dean of the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Sydney.
AHIC will be publishing a report which summaries the key achievements in IM&ICT across the health sector for 2004-05.
