Embracing digital health

New digital innovations and technologies are opening doors in health care bringing exciting and innovative ways to address health concerns and illness.

In February 2023, Albert Wu transitioned from General Practice (GP) and started his Medical Administration training at Te Whatu Ora for Counties Manukau to help him prepare for a role in clinical leadership and digital health.

The staff at Counties Manukau are amazing. They are really focused on what is best for our patients.

Albert tells us he wants to take his GP training and community experience and make a difference on a wider level for primary care and patients

“There hasn’t really been a cohesive voice and sufficient advocacy for primary care’s needs in digital health and I want to fill that role and bridge the communication gap between secondary and primary care.

“I’m still learning but this role allows me to do gain that experience to follow that path. Recently I attended the Waitemata Clinical Digital Academy, and I met like-minded health professionals who were passionate about driving positive digital change.”

Digital health is a significant advancement for healthcare but for any digital change to be successful, health clinicians and patients need to be engaged throughout the process.

“I want to make sure everyone's voice is heard and that these changes benefit everyone.”
