The Council of the Australasian College of Health Informatics (ACHI) and the Board of the Health Informatics Society of Australia (HISA) are pleased to invite you to vote on the proposal to combine our two organisations and form a new peak body for digital health and health informatics. 

Please note that as a member of both HISA and ACHI you will be able to vote twice.

A Special General Meeting for ACHI members and Fellows will be held on:

Monday 16 December 2019 at the Australian Digital Health Agency, L 25, 175 Liverpool Street Sydney, at 6:00pm.

You can vote in person, by GoToWebinar and by proxy. Full details are in the ACHI Notice of Special General Meeting.

We believe a new peak body will provide significant benefits to members both as individuals and organisationally that will flow onto many thousands of stakeholders across our health and care sector.

Our organisations have worked together collaboratively since ACHI was formed 20 years ago and today that relationship is as strong and strategic as ever. We believe that combining our forces and building a new organisation will strengthen our ability to deliver on the core outcomes you’ve grown to expect and to deliver better and more strategic programs that best serve all stakeholders as health progresses into the digital age.

On behalf of the HISA Board and the ACHI Council, we encourage you to vote. Please review the official documentation below and don’t hesitate to contact us with any requests for further information.
