The Health Informatics Research & Evaluation Unit (HIREU) located within the Faculty of Health Sciences at the University of Sydney, was established in 2006 with a mission to provide an evidence-base regarding the effective use of information and communication technologies (ICT) in the health sector. Such research requires a multi-method, multi-disciplinary approach which spans quantitative measurement of changes in health outcomes associated with ICT use, to understanding organisational cultural and work practice changes. Research methods applied are diverse with direct and video observational studies, social network analyses, measurement of error rates, work and communication patterns, and organisational cost and performance indicators.
The HIREU currently has opportunities available for suitably qualified and experienced researchers in health informatics. Please follow the link below for further information.
