CSIRO, Telstra team up to accelerate digital health adoption

CSIRO and Telstra Health have announced a partnership to accelerate the adoption of digital health solutions across the Australian health and aged care systems.

The deal builds on past collaborations between CSIRO and Telstra Health, which include working on modernising digital health infrastructure, strategic support for the Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR) Accelerator Program, Sparked, and evaluating the benefits of aged care programs.

Dr David Hansen, CEO of CSIRO’s Australian e-Health Research Centre (AEHRC), said, “This partnership with Telstra Health will facilitate access to our digital health tools and platforms by the people who can most benefit from them.

“From the development of standards and interoperability to active engagement with academic, industry and other partners, we believe our partnership can develop solutions to improve health outcomes.”

Telstra Health’s Managing Director, Elizabeth Koff AM, said, “This non-exclusive agreement will accelerate further adoption, foster innovation and lead to real improvements in Australia’s health and aged care systems.”

The partnership builds on the existing strategic colocation at the iQ precinct at Westmead in Western Sydney which brings together industry, CSIRO, clinicians and the academic sector to accelerate digital health.
