With a background as an occupational therapist and a PhD on technology acceptance amongst healthcare professionals, Louise is a world leader in allied health informatics and is intimately connected to Australia’s substantial health reform efforts, where e-health is seen to be a key enabler to achieving high quality, safe, sustainable and patient-centered care.
