$20m for Aussie e-health research

The Australian federal and Queensland state governments have together kicked in $20 million to fund the Brisbane-based Australian E-Health Research Centre (AEHRC) for the next four years.

Established in 2003 as a joint venture between the CSIRO and the Queensland government, the AEHRC has been developing simulated training tools, home monitoring systems for patients recovering from heart problems, improved imaging techniques, data analysis tools and electronic medical records.
