Digital Health Week 2022 | 15th-17th February, 2022

In 2022, we will again be bringing you a joint event between the University of Sydney and the University of Melbourne!

Digital Health Week (15-17 February 2022) is an opportunity for anyone interested in digital health to participate in a program of virtual events and share research and ideas. It is designed to be both informative, provocative, and a showcase of the innovative work being undertaken in digital health across the University of Sydney, the University of Melbourne, and beyond. Digital Health Week 2022 will bring together researchers, health services, industry, and the community to build person-centred eHealth collaborations.

Reality check: how do we make technology work in real life?

This year’s theme will have a focus on discussing how we can make technology truly work as a support tool for people in life and across health care systems. We want to explore the mismatch between real life and the potential of technology to support health and wellbeing. Our vision is to have diverse speakers who challenge us and spark discussions that might help us all to harness technology in different ways for more inclusive healthcare and support.

The program features three panel discussions that will each tackle the conference theme question of “Reality check: how do we make technology work in real life?” with different digital health stakeholders. The first panel has invited members of the community to share their unique experiences and valuable insights with us, the second panel will address the challenges of applying artificial intelligence into clinical practice, and the third panel will grapple with the systems and policies that make digital health come to life. Digital Health Week will also feature several abstract, networking, and ePoster sessions showcasing an exciting array of Digital Health projects.
