eMedication Management Conference  

eMedication Management Conference

The nation's only event to look solely at electronic prescribing and electronic medication management systems

14 - 15 March 2017 | Swissotel Sydney

Sponsor & Exhibit
Venue & Accommodation

The 6th Annual eMedication Management Conference will take place on 14-15 March 2017 at the Swissotel in Sydney.

In 2016, we welcomed over 100 attendees from across all states and territories, including representation from NZ and the UK. We look forward to 2017 with an audience made up of public and private hospitals, governments and universities to examine the implementation and integration processes of eMM systems.

The conference provides fantastic networking opportunities, and a platform for information sharing, encouraging hospitals that have had success with the introduction of eMM systems, to then support and guide the activities of those at an earlier stage in the process.
