Accelerating technology uptake during a pandemic: enabling and extending delivery of rehabilitation
About the Project
COVID-19 significantly disrupted the delivery of healthcare, especially in areas that require physical interaction, such as disability and rehabilitation. Although existing technology could enable remote interventions, its widespread adoption is limited. In this project, a Technology Assessment and Adoption framework will be co-designed across multiple stakeholders, to accelerate and facilitate the uptake of remote technology in rehabilitation settings across Queensland.
Accelerating the adoption of technological solution in healthcare requires clinical and end-user involvement throughout the development process, but this involvement is rare. The Framework will be co-designed increasing the relevant of solutions and likelihood of successful adoption. The framework will advise providers and guide technology and device companies.
