Amina is an Associate Professor in Digital Health and course coordinator for the QUT Graduate Certificate in Digital Health Leadership and Management within the School of Public Health and Social Work. Since completing her PhD in Health Informatics, she has worked on large scale research projects at multiple universities exploring the impact offered by digital health technologies in settings such as hospitals, primary and aged care. At AusHSI, Amina contributes to research, consultancy projects and education programs that aim to promote effective use of digital health technologies for high quality, safe care.
Amina’s research strengthens the global digital health agenda, enabling health stakeholders to adopt an evidence-based approach to mitigate patient safety risks associated with technology while maximising efficiency benefits. Her research is conducted in collaboration with frontline healthcare services which vastly enhances the impact, providing opportunities for direct translation into practice. Recommendations arising from her research have improved the functionality of commercial IT systems used in the Uniting and St Vincent’s Hospital for optimised patient safety.
