Investing in the future

New technologies allow us to transform the way services are designed and delivered in future.

A fast-growing population means we cannot stand still on digital innovation. Or translating ‘breakthrough’ research into practice.

The health and human services sector needs to expand its capacity to support 10.1 million Victorians by 2051. The Victorian Government is investing in new ICT platforms to enhance service provision.

These technologies will also strengthen Victoria’s medical research centres and alliances. To translate clinical innovations into the delivery of better, more personalised care.
