10:30 AM CASE STUDY: Enabling Innovation that Harnesses Digital Disruption in Health Research

Digital Health and Health Data Research are driving disruptive programmes that are changing healthcare services and health research. Monash University is a major player in the current environment in close partnership with health providers such as Alfred Health, Monash Health and Eastern Health who have forward thinking digital health strategies that envisage clinicians and researchers working side-by-side. The University is making significant investments in establishing a Health Data Platform to deliver best practice in health data research to support this ecosystem. In this session, Anitha will demonstrate how Monash University’s research expertise enables innovation in healthcare by:

  • Managing health data, including storage, collection, extraction and linkage
  • Collaborating over health data via secure environments like safe havens
  • Enabling the application of advanced computing, analysis techniques and informatics for processing and analysing these often complex data sets
