Vale Desmond Higgs

It is with great sadness that we advise of the passing of AAPM Life Member Des Higgs.

A management consultant to medical practices during the early part of his career in the 1960s, Des was a pioneer in medical billing systems, training and practice finance benchmarking, and was involved in the creation of some of the first practice management training courses in Australia.

Des was Public Officer of the first working board of management set up in Brisbane over four decades ago and remained a supporter of AAPM all of his life, most recently attending AAPM’s 2019 Conference in Brisbane. He is well known to a number of our longest-serving and most senior members.

National Office was informed today that Des passed away peacefully in his sleep on 20 November 2020, aged 92 years.
