Going national – Digital Health CRC spreads its wings

Digital Health CRC (DHCRC) is honing its culture and direction as Australia’s national organisation for digital health innovation and commercialisation, underpinned by clinical and research excellence. Dr Terry Sweeney CMG, who joined the DHCRC as CEO late last year, has been expanding the leadership team and establishing a physical base in three of Australia’s capital cities, promoting collaboration with industry. 

This month DHCRC’s Sydney office moves to the Tank Stream Labs at the Sydney Startup Hub the heart of the CBD, where DHCRC’s newly appointed Chief Operating Officer Tara Czinner is based. 

The CRC’s Adelaide team, including Dr Sweeney, are now based in the MIT Living Lab at the thriving innovation precinct Lot Fourteen, home to dozens of high-tech organisations including Amazon Web Services, the Australian Space Agency, Google Cloud Services, SmartSat CRC and Splunk. 

DHCRC’s new Chief Innovation Officer Dr Stefan Harrer will be based with the Melbourne team at YBF Ventures, a corporate innovation hub on Bourke Street. 

“These physical locations allow us to collaborate and integrate with other businesses who share an innovation and growth mindset, and we look forward to welcoming partners to meet us physically in these spaces,” says Dr Sweeney. 

“Backed by a stellar leadership team, board and partners, we’re excited to now be progressing towards our goal of creating a national footprint, leading the establishment of digital health as an industry in Australia.”
