The Centre for Digital Transformation of Health at The University of Melbourne

Education Information

A new Centre for Digital Transformation of Health has been launched at the University of Melbourne last week. Professor Wendy Chapman, Director of the center, said the centre will develop rigorously tested pathways for digital innovations, similar to the clinical trials process for drug approvals. The centre is a partnership between the Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences, and the School of Computing and Information Systems in the Melbourne School of Engineering.

It will bring together a world-class multidisciplinary team to create the Digital Health Validitron, a simulated digital and physical health environment that encompasses the complete range of clinical settings—from patient homes to acute and primary care—so that digital health innovations can be built, implemented, tested, adapted, and clinically validated for broad adoption.
