In 2015/16 we formed partnerships with six not-for-profit organisations to deliver technology expertise. Here’s a few examples of what we’ve partnered on:
- Cystic Fibrosis New South Wales – Design and development of a mobile app to empower young people with Cystic Fibrosis to manage their own health – intended to improve health outcomes and life expectancy.
- Heartkids Australia – Design and development of a medical registry for childhood congenital heart disease. This will enable medical practitioners to better gather and analyse data on the disease, intervene more effectively in patient care. Furthermore it will inform the design and management of medical research, treatment, workforce planning and allied health support services.
- Hunter Medical Research Institute – Design and development of a new website to link the medical research community with the general public – empowering members of the public to participate in world leading research.
