The Medical Software Industry Association is an important industry body... we have worked constructively with the MSIA on a broad number of issues and used them as a clearing house for important messages to industry.
The Association has grown and evolved into a dynamic organisation . Of particular value is the manner in which the Association engages with our industry partners in Government, as well as the professional and highly valued member events
The ability of the Association to assist its very broad membership in dealing with a number of complex government projects, and a skillful balance of working with the Agency to promote the national agenda in a way that effectively represents their members and carves out an important role for them is commendable
