Join us and our panel of experts to explore major initiatives in the current eHealth system and learn how these great lessons can be applied to all industries. What’s being done to actively improve and transform current practices? eHealth is evolving and creating new opportunities for patients and clinicians, hospitals and health practices, and the health system as a whole. How is Queensland positioned regarding these initiatives, what’s coming next, and how can you and others benefit? Health and tech industry representatives will gain insights and network with some of the best experts the industry has to offer.

Joining us will be a panel of special guests:
Dr Clair Sullivan, Consultant Endocrinologist, Princess Alexandra Hospital;
Prof Andrew Burton-Jones, Professor of Business Information Systems, University of Queensland; and
Mr Dan Harradine, Partner, KPMG

Dr Clair Sullivan is currently the senior staff specialist in Endocrinology and cares for patients at Princess Alexandra Hospital and is the Co-Chair for the Queensland Diabetes Network. She graduated with Honours from the University of Queensland and completed a Research Doctorate in Medicine (UK) at The General Infirmary at the University of Leeds. While maintaining several national and international collaborations and research interests, Dr Sullivan has received numerous large grants including a prestigious Pfizer CVL fellowship.

As the Medical Lead for Digital Health Improvement for Queensland and Co-Chair of the Statewide Network for Digital Health Improvement, Dr Sullivan has been heavily involved in the transformation of the Princess Alexandra hospital into Australia’s first large scale tertiary digital hospital as well as the ongoing digital transformation of Queensland Health.

Professor Andrew Burton-Jones graduated from the University of Queensland’s Commerce program in 1998 and worked for several years in IT risk management for one of the Big-4 accounting/consulting firms. He then moved to Georgia State University in Atlanta, USA, to complete his Ph.D., followed by seven years at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada, where he became a tenured Associated Professor, returning to UQ in May 2012.

Professor Burton-Jones has taught information systems in undergraduate, graduate, and executive programs, in several countries. He has a particular interest in IT governance and control, IT development, and IT strategy. He undertakes research in three areas. His first area focuses on how effectively organisations use IT. For example, he has been studying the effective use of electronic health records in health authorities. His second research area focused on improving methods to analyse and design IT systems. For example, he has examined ways to improve the specification of user requirements. His third research stream focuses on improving theories and methods used by researchers in the Information Systems discipline.

To date, Andrew has published in and served on the editorial boards of the Journal of the Association for Information Systems, Information Systems Research, MIS Quarterly, and other outlets. He recently completed a term as Representative for the Americas for the Association of Information Systems and commenced a term as International Representative for the Academy of Management (OCIS Division).

Mr Dan Harradine, Partner at KPMG, is one of the leaders of the firm’s national Health, Ageing and Human Services (HAHS) practice. Based in Brisbane, he heads up KPMG’s Queensland and Northern Territory HAHS offices.

Dan has more than 17 years’ experience working across the public and private sectors, having held executive roles across a number of Queensland Government agencies prior to joining KPMG in 2013. These roles included providing advice to Premiers, Ministers and Directors-General on major healthcare reforms, social policy initiatives, infrastructure delivery programs and service enhancement projects.

Specifically in relation to healthcare, Dan has led significant system reform and improvement activities across a number of Australian jurisdictions. Immediately prior to joining KPMG, as a member of Queensland Health’s executive team Dan led the design and implementation of Queensland’s version of agreed national health reforms. As the executive sponsor of that program of work, he oversaw the largest system-wide change program in the State’s health services in a generation. With KPMG, he has supported the Northern Territory Government with the implementation of similar reforms to that jurisdiction’s healthcare system. These projects have represented major disruption to ‘business as usual’ for large-scale service delivery systems.

Having undertaken consulting engagements across the private sector, both central departments and line agencies of government and with the not-for-profit sector, he possesses unique insight into the tensions between maintaining the status quo and addressing the very real (and often rapid) drivers of disruption and change. He has extensive experience in practically translating new strategies into ‘on-the-ground’ outcomes and service improvements.

Dan holds formal qualifications in economics and business management from the University of Queensland, has completed the Australian and New Zealand School of Government Executive Fellows Program and has been an invited participant at Michael E. Porter’s Harvard Business School Strategy for Healthcare Leadership course.
