Harnessing technology for better health outcomes
We now face healthcare needs and expectations at a scale our current system is unable to respond to. Digital health offers transformational opportunities to reach more people in their own space, and to use data and digital technologies to make healthcare more personalised and effective.
The Wellington Faculty of Health—Te Wāhanga Tātai Hauora has a strong, interdisciplinary focus on digital health. Our research interests span big data, machine learning, gaming and behaviour change, mental health, health promotion, software, equity, and more.
