This event is free.

  • 2020-2021 saw 8 million Australians present to Emergency Departments at hospitals across the country.
  • 6.1 million were not subsequently admitted into the hospital for further treatment due to the great work of the ED teams.
  • 500,000 presented to the ED and left without seeing anyone or at their own risk due to perceived waiting times.
  • The average wait time for those who waited around was 102 minutes with 50% seen in 18 minutes.
  • 1.2 million people travelled from outer regions or remote areas to get to emergency departments.

The challenges of communicating effectively across health teams to meet the demands, especially in our most complex environments (such as remote health clinics and emergency departments) are as vast as the country we live in.

As a leading Microsoft Cloud for Health Care partner, Velrada has invited some of Australia’s finest Microsoft Modern Workplace partners and customers to join our team and co-present for this immersive event. Together we’ll showcase the possibilities for Healthcare utilising the Microsoft cloud ecosystem.

Join us, either for a light lunch at the Microsoft Technology Centre or via Teams, to hear the work that innovative health services have been doing to push the status quo into improving collaboration that drives improved patient experiences. This interactive journey will take us from remote and regional health teams to multidisciplinary teams, to hospitals and then onto ongoing patient care.


  • Hear from Microsoft’s Chief Medical Officer on the global state of critical care delivery and the role technology can play.
  • Hear real stories from the staff at Health care organisations.
  • Velrada will show you how, using Microsoft Mixed Reality, Remote/Regional health teams can leverage collaboration tools to get expert support and decrease the need for patient travel.
  • QTEC will demonstrate how, using Microsoft Teams, cross-health service team communications, typically done over the phone, can become more collaborative and efficient.
  • FiveP will present how, using their Teams application Baret, hospital comms, typically driven by a paging system, can be vastly improved, reducing the risk of lost information whilst gaining critical efficiencies in communication.
  • Velrada will present how, using the Microsoft Cloud for Healthcare, the communications between care delivery teams, patients and supporting parties can be vastly improved, leading to better outcomes for admitted patients.
  • Panel question time: Bairnsdale Regional Health Service, Microsoft, Velrada, QTEC and FiveP.
