Digital Advisory Group

Digital Advisory Group

Established in 2020 by Health Translation Queensland (HTQ), the Digital Advisory Group brings together experts from across our partnership to champion a learning health system in Queensland and sufficient architecture to support such a system. Their objective is to provide a framework for greater harmonisation and streamlining of digital health systems across our partners in the broader health environment.

Key achievements

  • Guided the creation of the Health Research Digital Ecosystem – a capability statement that maps and describes Queensland’s health research digital landscape, enabling stakeholders to understand how they can navigate the digital ecosystem to access and share research data and materials.
  • Led the development of the Health Studies Australian National Data Asset (HeSANDA) Queensland node (launched in October 2023) to give researchers access to clinical trial data.
  • Representing Queensland as a member of the Australian Health Research Alliance (AHRA) national network: Data driven health care improvement.

Current activity

HTQ’s Digital Advisory Group informs on HTQ’s digital health work program. This includes education and training, best practice initiatives, and creating opportunities for workforce development.

The group are working on the following initiatives:

  • social network research project to visualise and quantify Queensland’s digital health research ecosystem
  • foster growth and invest in the digital health research workforce by establishing a HTQ Digital Scholarships program
  • organise an annual digital ecosystem networking event for clinicians and researchers to encourage collaboration.
