Health Innovation & Technology Space (HITS)

Intravenous Fluids

Austin Health has recently opened the new Health Innovation and Technology Space (HITS). Located in the Austin Health Sciences Library, this Australian-first space is designed to encourage Austin Health staff to interact with the technology and collaborate on innovative ideas.

The ultimate aim is to improve the way we care for our patients, and the space is equipped with a range of computing and collaboration technologies including:

  • Microsoft Surface Pro devices
  • Hitachi large screen interactive monitor
  • Office 365 
  • Microsoft Teams
  • Azure cloud-based artificial intelligence

Further capabilities will be developed over time.
