“CSIRO’s Australian e-Health Research Centre (AEHRC) has led the way by becoming the first public sector organisation in the world to publish a machine learning-based health product on the AWS Marketplace” The Challenge: Researchers are constantly advancing analysis approaches gaining sophisticated insights from complex data. However, the knowledge remains hidden in academic publications or obscure […]

“Going beyond research-scale solutions to realise the promise of genomics-driven precision medicine” The Challenge: Stratifying patient cohorts by medical phenotype information, such as disease progression, has become a common practice to better understand treatment responses. However, doing the same on genomic data, which could give information on drug efficacy or risk to develop adverse reactions, […]

The AIBL – Longitudinal Study of Ageing is designed to assess the biomarkers of Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) by studying Australian participants blood based, imaging, and lifestyle biomarkers over time. The Challenge:  There is no known cure for Alzheimer’s Disease. The challenge was to define a set of biomarkers that are associated with the early identification […]

                The Australian e-Health Research Centre team is off to the national iAwards on 30 August 2018 after their game-changing innovations were again successful at the state iAwards this year. Gongs included: Queensland iAwards Winner of the QLD Premier’s iAward for Public Sector Innovation for the mobile-Pulmonary Rehabilitation […]

AEHRC has developed a flexible surgical simulation software platform, MILXSim, which provides high performance rendering and simulation capabilities to the Surgical Simulation and Planning team. The platform is developed in C++ and uses OpenGL with advanced surface shading techniques to render photo-realistic surgical training scenes and data rich preoperative planning scenarios. MILXSim uses a plugin […]

  CSIRO is a partner in the Dementia Team Grant led by Prof Ian Blair at Macquarie University – one of only six funded applications. The Challenge: Uncovering the molecular mechanisms of Amyotrophic Later Sclerosis (ALS). CSIRO is responsible for the genomic data analysis of 800 Australian WGS ALS samples, as well as the data […]

MilxXplore is a php application developed by the Biomedical Imaging Group. It is part of the Australian e-Health Research Centre, CSIRO Digital Productivity and Services Flagship.  MilxXplore provides high performance rendering and simulation capabilities to the Surgical Simulation and Planning team. The aim of MilxXplore is to simplify the representation of data, and to aggregate the […]

The Challenge: Renewal software and terminology to support MALT initiative The Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (RACS) pursued a visionary e-health, future-proofed data environment for their members and stakeholders who contribute data to their Morbidity Audit and Logbook Tool (MALT). MALT collects data in order to track the surgeon’s experience and performance during training, as […]

The Australian e-Health Research Centre at CSIRO, together with Johnson & Johnson Medical Devices Australia, have designed and developed Activate TKR, an orthopaedic support technology platform, which comprises a mobile phone application (app), a wearable activity tracker, and a clinical web portal. The Challenge: Patients aren’t completing rehab following total knee replacements The app aims […]
