Innovative Data Health Research is on Display at HiNZ 2018

Precision Driven Health is showcasing 15 projects at Aotearoa’s premier health technology event, the Health Informatics New Zealand Conference (HiNZ), in Wellington this week.

Programme Manager Dr Kelly Atkinson says the projects represent the considerable depth and breadth of the research that is being undertaken by the team, in collaboration with its partners in the health, university and government sectors.

“It’s hugely impressive what our talented researchers are achieving, with many of these projects designed to have global appeal,” Dr Atkinson says.

“We are also proud to be working on research that is actively helping to solve issues that Māori and Pasifika people experience in our health system, through the use, creation, and application of world-leading data techniques.”

Projects being presented at HiNZ include the following:

For the first time at HiNZ, Precision Driven Health will have its own booth, where it will pose a number of thought-provoking questions such as ‘would you bequeath your health data to science’, for attendees to consider.

Dr Atkinson says the organisation is keen to challenge some of the assumptions about the role of data in improving data health care and to engage more people in understanding the immense benefit that data research can bring to improving the lives of all New Zealanders.
