With an aging population and increasing prevalence of chronic disease, Australian healthcare is facing increasingly complex challenges in the coming decades. ATSE aims to help develop and promote technological solutions to meet these challenges and maintain the quality of life of all Australians.
This project set out to explore whether a person-centred interdisciplinary network of experts can enable healthy and fulfilling independent living for the aged and people with disability through the adoption of assistive technologies for home-based healthcare.
ATSE is supportive of the Queensland Government’s 10-Year Roadmap for the biomedical and life sciences sector
ATSE believes that the priority gap facing the nation’s health system is the poor translation and commercialisation of medical research in Australia
A three phase ATSE study funded by the Australian Research Council’s Linkage Learned Academies Special Projects (LASP) scheme
Today’s healthcare system is technology dependent. Many of the future advances will depend on collaborative contributions from engineers, computer scientists, physicists and chemists
Future discoveries in medical research will contribute to improving the health and wellbeing of all Australians
This Health Technology Workshop centred on discussions around current and emerging disruptive technologies in Australia and the benefits such technologies have for society
The Academy has identified that technologies can play a major role in reducing healthcare costs when they are socially accepted and widely adopted
ATSE recommends that Australia must retain an individual regulatory body to ensure continued safety of the Australian population and grow and promote globally competitive medicine and medical device industries in Australia
A robust Australian medical device industry has the potential for national economic and social benefits through job creation, export growth, and improved healthcare
Healthcare must be effective and affordable. To deal effectively with changing demographics and patterns of disease, Australia must develop and deploy advanced technologies that are effective across all populations...
Interactive technologies are being developed to assess and improve the health of every Australian for earlier disease detection and diagnosis
The rapid national large scale deployment of assistive technologies is essential if the growth in healthcare costs is to be contained

ATSE is exploring the establishment of an enabling assistive technologies network arising from discussion with NETS
There are technologies currently available, or being developed, which can greatly assist people with limitations associated with ageing or disability to enjoy a better quality of and more productive life.
