What is Digital Health? Digital technologies such as social networking, mobile connectivity and bandwidth, increasing computing power and the data universe will converge with wireless sensors, genomics, imaging, and health information systems to recreate medicine and health care as we know it. Dr. Eric Topol, world renowned cardiologist and professor of genomics, in his book The Creative Destruction of Medicine refers to this as ‘digital medicine’.
The world is increasingly seeing the convergence of health care and wireless technology and these innovations are quickly becoming an integral part of the medical landscape. uHealth works with its digital health partners around the world, as well as key stakeholders locally, to develop, validate and deliver these cutting edge innovations to Australia - revolutionising the management of chronic diseases & wellbeing.
uHealth’s Surgical business is applying the concepts & approaches that the other segments of uHealth follow:
We are introducing innovative surgical solutions to the operating theatre in an effort to progress the Australian surgical landscape.
Our focus is on making surgery easier, faster and more effective. The uHealth team has over 20 years of experience in driving health care innovation, and we apply this knowledge to the surgical business – with a focus on biologic regenerative technologies and general surgery systems. uHealth partners with innovators from around the world to improve clinical outcomes for patients and help build an efficient health care system for us all.
uHealth Innovation is the commercialisation division of uHealth.
While the other divisions of uHealth are focused on the distribution & marketing of existing technology, uHealth Innovation brings health care innovation to life.
uHealth Innovation does this through a unique integrated network of partners that are all specialists in specific aspects of bringing technology from concept to commercialised product. uHealth partners with intellectual property specialists that can secure ideas and help build a platform for innovation ownership. Our partners are also award-winning designers and engineers who work with us on building technologies with optimal user experience, efficacy and functionality in mind.
uHealth Innovation takes these technologies to the world through established global distribution channels, applying the skills and knowledge of our commercialisation team. We also work closely with our network of investment partners that help fund the development of medical innovation through customised funding models.
