The inaugural National Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Services (NACCHO) summit took place at the Adelaide Convention Centre, Adelaide 19-22 August, 2013. The summit gave NACCHO the opportunity to showcase the national, state and local best practice in the management of the health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. The summit was attended by CEO's of Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Services (ACCO's) from across Australia as well as general practitioners, hospital medical staff, researchers, students, nurses, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health workers, allied health practitioners, administrators and policy makers involved in remote, rural and regional health care.

The presentations were themed under Governance, Workforce and Comprehensive Primary Health Care and covered all aspects of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health.

The Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet held an internet cafe. The main focus was to promote the new website; the Australian Indigenous ClinicalInfoNet.
Michelle Elwell and Neil Thomson ran the café which aimed to raise awareness of how the ClinicalInfoNet could support delegates in their capacity as primary health workers.

This was also a good opportunity to raise awareness of the Australian HealthInfoNet in general to the delegates.
Many delegates were already aware of the HealthInfoNet and provided positive feedback on how they used the site in their everyday work.
