The rate of advancement in the development of digital health technologies is unprecedented. This inaugural Award seeks to recognise innovators who are at the forefront of digital health technologies.
The Digital Health Technology Award is presented for an emerging, innovative technology that advances healthcare delivery and/or enables healthcare users and providers to improve health outcomes.
Eligible technologies will have been supported through Australian health and medical research, they will have at least one Australian individual, institution, or organisation as a collaborating partner.
This award will go to the individual, team or organisation who has developed, trialled, or implemented the technology.
