We are ambitiously dedicated to providing you and the broader health and policy sector, including consumers, with evidence-based research to catalyse performance improvements in the health system. Collectively, we produced more than 230 peer-reviewed journal articles this year plus we contributed numerous conference presentations and other articles.

We selected the following publications as highlights as they either made an impact to improving the body of knowledge in a field, proved particularly revealing, or attracted high, broad-based interest.

You can see all AIHI publications on our website, but here are highlights arranged under the following headings:

  • Improving medication management
  • Exploring artificial intelligence and machine learning
  • Translating research into practice
  • Understanding apps and social media influences
  • Enhancing diagnosis
