The ACT Health Directorate's Digital Health Strategy 2019-2029 outlines the direction for the ACT public health system in building the digital capabilities needed to support a sustainable, innovative and world-class health system for our region.

The strategy also illustrates a desired future state for digital health in the ACT.


The strategy sets out principles to guide the design and development of digital health capabilities to support the delivery of safe and high-quality person-centred care.

Three themes set the foundations for the strategy.


Assemble all information about a patient including care plan, progress, therapies and medications relevant to the patient’s physical and health and overall wellbeing. These details, coupled with relevant external data, will provide a holistic patient-centred view that will be accessible in a way that will suit them.

Research, discovery and collaboration

Enable an effective, efficient, and collaborative environment for multi-disciplinary stakeholders across the care continuum to focus on what matters most – patient care.

Health services enabled by contemporary technology

Provide a health system that:

  • has advanced technology
  • is secure, consistent across services and accessible
  • that is capable of ensuring that up-to-date patient information is available when required.

Automated administrative tasks and investment in robust infrastructure will ensure future demands are met.
