About The Collaborative

Who are we?

In one of the first initiatives of Australia’s National Digital Health Strategy – Safe, Seamless, and Secure, the Australian Digital Health Agency has partnered with eHealth NSW and the Sydney Children’s Hospitals Network to establish the National Children’s Digital Health Collaborative.

The Collaborative consists of over 400 individuals including consumers, clinicians, health and social care provider organisations, researchers, jurisdictions and ICT industry partners who are focused on improving the health and wellbeing of Australian children and young people through the use of digital technologies.


Our vision

“To make Australia the best place in the world to raise healthy children and young people, and to be raised”

All Australian children, irrespective of location, socioeconomic status or cultural background, should have the same opportunity to be healthy, safe and thriving.

The Collaborative is exploring how digital health technology can:

  • Empower families to be partners in their children’s care with their healthcare providers
  • Provide families with easy access to and control of their health information
  • Integrate and better-coordinate care for children and young people
  • Enhance the quality of children’s care through building a lifetime digital health record from conception
  • Co-design innovative digital health solutions that will help improve the health and wellbeing of all Australian children.


Who is leading the Collaborative?

The Collaborative is led by NSW Health in partnership with the Australian Digital Health Agency and all States and Territories.
