Health Transformation Lab opens in Melbourne

By

Cisco and RMIT University have launched the Health Transformation Lab, a place for health leaders to bring their most complex and difficult challenges and consider how technology can support health initiatives.

Projects already underway include a brooch that can detect loneliness, a ‘tunechair’ that can activate memory and reduce agitation in dementia patients and health drones that have the potential to improve patient rehabilitation outcomes.

RMIT’s Health Transformation Lab is a great example of academia and industry coming together to find solutions to real social and economic challenges,” said RMIT vice chancellor and president Martin Bean.

“As a global university of technology, design and enterprise, we are excited to be working with industry leaders like Cisco and passionate health professionals to deliver life-changing innovation.”

The lab is said to bring together health and innovation leaders, human centred design, systems thinking, technology and communication process transformation to reshape the future of health.

“The Health Transformation Lab is where Australian leaders come to solve their hardest problems, sometimes in the most surprising and provocative of ways,” said Health Transformation Lab director Professor Vishaal Kishore.

“It’s a place where technology, innovation and humanity collide in a way that we haven’t seen before in Australia, producing outcomes with real impact and transformation for the Australian health system, its providers and the people it seeks to serve.”

Cisco ANZ digital transformation office managing director Sam Gerner said “There has never been a more pressing time to leverage the digital platform investments that have been made across the healthcare system. By facilitating collaborations with academics, clinicians and technologists there is the potential to develop and test exciting new healthcare solutions enabled by increased connectivity and digital insights.”

Cisco’s involvement in the lab is part of the company’s commitment to invest $61 million into digital transformation projects in Australia over three years under its Country Digital Acceleration program.
