Innovation Challenge Winners
Congratulations to the winners
Through the National Digital Health Strategy, government is partnering with our internationally competitive and vibrant health technology sector at a time when the use of technology in health and social care has never been more important.
The Australian Digital Health Agency is focused on both immediate responses to COVID-19 as it evolves into recovery management and shaping Australia's digital healthcare systems for the better beyond national health emergencies.
While the rapid adoption of digital health services has presented some challenges, it has also created opportunity. So we challenged innovators across Australia to come forward with scalable tools and solutions that position us to improve our digital health system.
