2012 HISA Mobile Health App University Challenge

In 2012 it is no secret that application software, also known as applications or more commonly "apps,” have become embedded into our everyday environment. Designed to help users perform specific tasks, HISA recognises the potential of mobile applications to assist and improve health and the healthcare of consumers.

Participants are required to design and present an idea for an innovative e-health related mobile application that facilitates and improves the way individuals experience or receive healthcare. Areas may include, but are not limited to: Services provided by healthcare professionals at the point of care; Health literacy, self-management and decision-support skills for consumers; Ageing independently at home.  The target users for the app can be clinicians, patients or consumers.  The application must be developed for a smartphone, tablet or any other mobile device.

The HISA Mobile Health App Challenge is open to any active student registered (full or part time) with an accredited university or TAFE in Australia.
