AEHRC Annual Report 21/22

October 12th, 2022

Today CSIRO’s Australian e-Health Research Centre publishes our AEHRC Annual Report for 2021-2022. As the Centre moves into its next five years of funding from Queensland Health, it will continue to be a key agent in the digitisation of health across the nation.

This post -COVID era has seen an increased demand for AI and machine learning driven technologies to propel and support virtual care and data sharing and analysis. Over the past year, the AEHRC has risen to the challenge of the imperative for connected care and increased digital clinical decision support. Our work in interoperability, precision medicine, text analytics, bioinformatics and medical imaging has provided the clinical tools, technical frameworks and analytical knowledge to fully compliment already existing health systems. More than this though, our research opens up avenues for workflows, processes and digital ways of working that invite revised approaches to the health and wellbeing of Australians.

We will continue to strive to make health systems and infrastructures more personalised, efficient and effective, easing the burden on patients and clinicians and contributing to a healthier community. While we’re looking to the future, let’s also take a moment to relish and celebrate our achievements and contributions over the year that’s passed.

Thanks to all our people for another great year of impact!
