- procures, builds and implements state-wide technology solutions that streamline and complement the work of health professionals
- establishes business processes to ensure that the change is sustainable
- reviews and approves state and Area initiatives to ensure that ICT investment is consistent with the state-wide strategy
The new ICT systems will allow clinicians and other healthcare professionals to focus on the core business of providing patient care.
