Digital technology will enable safer, higher quality health services leading to better outcomes for patients and efficiencies for health care providers. Science and research underpinned by community engagement and industry collaboration will be integral moving forward.

We develop strategic partnerships to undertake research in e-health, big data analysis, decision support, software development, mobile technologies, digital healthcare services, clinical needs, medical and laboratory workflows and more.

    Our strength lies in world class science, technological innovation and strong industry partnerships. AEHRC welcomes interest and investment from businesses and entrepreneurs interested in developing new products and services to improve healthcare.

    AEHRC research takes a collaborative approach with strong clinical and consumer engagement during projects. Our multi-disciplinary team is dedicated to serving the needs of patients, clinicians and health agencies. We work closely with government health departments, hospitals and health services in metropolitan, rural and regional areas.
