The ECU eHealth Research Group is the leading university research group focussing on the application of informatics to the area of e-health. The Group is based in the School of Computer and Security Science, yet includes members from the Faculty of Health, Engineering and Science and from across the University. The Group combines knowledge and capabilities in information and communications technology, clinical care, medical science, management, security and governance, to create wide-ranging healthcare research.
The eHealth Research Group is able to draw on this expertise and has research interests in the domains of:
- eHealth Informatics;
- eHealth Security;
- Mobile eHealth (mHealth);
- Indigenous eHealth; and
- eHealth Education.
These themes are applied in the areas of primary care, online communities, wellness programs, and clinical care.
The eHealth Research Group aims is to provide scholarship, research and practice in order to promote e-health research and expertise within Australia. Its primary focus is on investigating how e-health can support improving clinical outcomes and healthcare delivery. Integral to this is transforming research into sustainable practical solutions. These aims are supported by engaging with healthcare community and developing productive partnerships, developing pioneering educational programs in e-health, undertaking world class research into how e-health technologies and processes can better support patient care, and by transforming knowledge into practical solutions.
We encourage you to read about our research activities and invite you to contact us with any questions you have. We also welcome opportunities to work collaboratively with you on projects that will add to the growing field of e-health.
