AIMed is a clinician led movement that brings together clinicians, hospital leaders and technology. AIMed Australia marks the fourth AIMed flagship summit, on top of earlier AIMed summits held in North America, Europe and Asia.

Dr Anthony Chang, AIMed Chairman and Founder, and Chief Intelligence and Innovation Officer of the Children’s Hospital of Orange County (CHOC), says:

“AIMed has been yearning to be in Australia, as some of the World’s best minds in informatics and intelligence in biomedicine are in that region. In order to be excellent at AI in medicine and healthcare, we need to learn about each country’s health system, AI landscape, and how they solve problems using AI. We very much look forward to this exciting opportunity to learn from each other.”

Dr Victor Pantano, CEO of the Digital Health CRC, says:

“We are delighted to support the AIMed Australia Summit, as we see a real synergy between our research themes and elements of AI featured in the Summit program. I hope to see many of our participants there for what promises to be an extremely valuable event.”
