The cutting edge conceptual paper describes the first framework connecting digital health and real world health care. The model has been developed in collaboration with co-workers from Queensland University of Technology, Massey University ( New Zealand), the University of Social Sciences (Singapore), Maastricht University (The Netherlands) and the Technical University of Applied Sciences Cologne (Germany).

The project illustrates the advantages of cross-faculty collaboration between different faculties and centres at the University of Canberra, in this case the Canberra Business School (Faculty of Business, Management and Law) and the Health Research Institute, Faculty of Health. This paper has been incorporated into the knowledge base for the EMPOWER project which is aimed at producing a digital platform to improve wellbeing and mental health and is funded by the Australian NHMRC and the Horizon 2020 program in the European Union.
