NIHI’s work was showcased at the recent Health Informatics New Zealand (HINZ) conference in Wellington. NIHI’s booth in the exhibition hall displayed a range of our mHealth and health informatics projects being carried out. There was a lot of interest by conference delegates with existing collaborations strengthened and new contacts and relationships formed.
On day one of the conference, NIHI ran a symposium on AI in healthcare led by Gayl Humphrey, Jamal Zolhaverieh, and Lin Ni and with contributions from a range of experts in this area. The symposium showcased projects representing what is currently happening in the space of chat, machine/deep learning, and in general AI in Health and explored challenges in this space. The symposium facilitated collaborations and a community of shared practice and advancement.
Throughout the rest of the conference, NIHI work was showcased in presentations. These included presentations by Rosie Dobson on ‘The potential of mobile health - reducing health inequalities’, ‘Patients informing the next generation of mHealth Interventions’, and ‘mHealth from Research to Implementation: The SMS4BG example’; and by Jamal Zolhavarieh and Lin Ni on ‘EngageBot: an AI-system to provide health services for discharged patients’.
