How we will deliver
- The proposed Health and Wellbeing Precinct will be developed with an industry partner or consortium of partners
- Services will be delivered by qualified healthcare professionals and clinical students
- Education will be enhanced with the placement of undergraduate and postgraduate students from the UOW allied health, nursing and medical schools, as well as other faculties such as engineering (for example, to look at the development of health applications and wearable technologies)
- The precinct will create a space where medical professionals sit alongside students, researchers and academics and where aged-care centres sit alongside state-of-the-art rehabilitation services. GPs will work side by side with dietitians, dentists and psychologists
- The Health and Wellbeing Precinct will emulate successful models of care established across the world, such as the Mayo Clinic in the United States
- Strategic partnerships will be created to deliver on the particular health needs of the Illawarra and beyond, with a focus on strong translational outcomes
- intoHealth will have direct links with the Illawarra Health and Medical Research Institute (IHMRI) at UOW. IHMRI currently undertakes a range of health and medical research programs targeting health improvements through novel treatments, better clinical practice and preventative health.
- Connectivity to community through the development of special networks to deliver more sustainable solutions.
