Westmead wins $1m from Google for AI applications in cardiac care
The University of Sydney’s Westmead Applied Research Centre has been awarded $1 million by Google to develop a customised digital health program using artificial intelligence to reduce the risk of heart attack.
Led by cardiologist Clara Chow (pictured), the centre was set up last year in collaboration with the Western Sydney Local Health District to focus on translational research addressing chronic illness.
Professor Chow is also involved in the Western Sydney cardiology care test bed being run by the Australian Digital Health Agency to investigate the use of the My Health Record in rapid access cardiology clinics (RACC) at Westmead Hospital.
