What is GeHCo?

The Global eHealth Collaborative (GeHCo) has been established to work with health informatics expertise committed to upskill the current workforce and train the next generation of e-health designers, builders, implementers, maintainers and users needed to solve the unique challenges associated with digital clinical knowledge acquisition, application, sharing and use. This includes system architecture, schema, tooling, educational resource and health informatics standards development, testing and evaluation as well as associated implementation approaches, in a safe simulated collaborative environment.

GeHCo is passionate about the need for solving eHealth and Health Informatics implementation issues including education. We see this as an essential building block underpinning the necessary reform in the health industry, enabling the population as a whole to have equitable access to safe and effective health care within a sustainable health system.
