Adelaide Health Innovation Partnership

South Australia’s leaders in healthcare, research, teaching and innovation have joined together to realise the vision to drive and advance better healthcare and become a collective world leader.

Central Adelaide Local Health Network (CALHN) has entered into a formal alliance with the South Australian Health & Medical Research Institute (SAHMRI), forming the Adelaide Health Innovation Partnership (AHIP). The partnership is supported by the University of Adelaide and the University of South Australia.

The world-class translational research that will come from AHIP will also provide us with novel ways of tackling the growing burden of chronic disease. This, combined with our expertise in clinical trials, will offer patients access to the newest treatments, providing hope for the community.

Building on the strong partnerships that have emerged from the challenges of COVID-19, the AHIP mission is to join forces to address the most serious health challenges through research excellence and innovation, which can translate into clinical practice.

AHIP will focus on five significant health challenges, ensuring maximum benefit for the South Australian community; cancer care, heart disease & diabetes, critical care, mental health and emerging infectious diseases.

Connected with the AHIP will be the ‘A-HiVe’, a flagship digital health innovation consortium, underpinned by Adelaide Health Innovation Venture.

A-HiVe aims to create the next generation of healthcare technology at the intersection of healthcare, big data and AI.  AHIP will lead Australian in AI in health utilising South Australian AI skills, and the unique configuration of SA’s centralised, state-wide data and health systems.

It will create a community of local, national and international healthcare and technology organisations, taking the best of Australian innovation to the world.

Located on the Adelaide Biomedical Precinct, AHIP will be backed by world class South Australian organisations, and strategic national and international partners.

This new partnership will really accelerate and assist our efforts as we work towards achieving our vision of being in the top 5 health networks in Australia and the top 50 in the world by 2025.
