Team Leader
Digital Health Engagement

The Digital Health Engagement team designs, implements and evaluates technologies that can be used by clinicians to improve workflow and enhance service delivery; and by individuals to support them in playing a proactive role in their health and wellbeing to meet short- or long-term lifestyle goals.

Our Science

We draw on expertise across Human Computer Interaction, Personalisation & Recommendations, Persuasive Technology, Human Robot Interaction, Medicine, Neuroscience and Social Science to conduct whole spectrum studies from conception to evaluation. We use qualitative and quantitative methods to provide a strong evidence base from our participatory, user centric designs, clinical trials and evaluation frameworks.

Impact on the Health System

The team addresses the challenges to individuals, clinicians and society arising from chronic and acute physical and mental health conditions, and looks at measures to improve wellbeing to prevent the onset of disease.

Science Challenges

How do we design appropriate technologies and devices that have high levels of uptake and adherence to best enhance health self autonomy and service delivery.

Our solutions

Through the use of platform technologies, stand alone apps, robotics, wearable devices and chat bots, the team works with all relevant stakeholders from design through trial, implementation and evaluation to provide solutions to facilitate the provision of equitable and economical health care.

Cultural key phrases
The app translates Cultural Key Phrases for five allied health disciplines into 10 common languages using pictorial, video, written and voice-over prompts to ensure appropriate and timely care for inpatients.
