Transitioning to the digital age of healthcare can be difficult for an already well-established health system. Michael Walsh, the Director General for Queensland Health, which is the state’s largest health system whose 100,000 employees serve 5 million patients, knows all too much about how to facilitate a health system into the digital world. What makes Michael and Queensland Health unique is their willingness to include clinicians into the conversation. In fact, clinicians have configured their EMR system and ultimately have the final say. Now, how can startups with digital health solutions join forces with large health systems? Hear Michael’s answer to get the scoop on what large health systems are looking for in partnerships.
