This is REI process is intended to enable the Agency to establish test bed projects that will produce evidence of the positiveimpact of new digitally-enabled services and models of care, and demonstrate that they are sustainable and scalable.
The Agency’s overarching business objectives are to:
1. promote innovation and create new digitally-enabled services and models of care that focus on priority health areas;
2. accelerate realisation of benefits attributable to digital health;
3. generate evidence to secure ongoing investment in digital health;
4. instigate sustainable and viable partnerships with industry and other organisations; and
5. inform the development of test bed framework for the enhanced models of care pillar in the National Digital Health Strategy.

These test beds require a collaborative model of delivery and are intended to be partnerships between industry, government and other organisations. The Agency is seeking proposals by Respondents that use new approaches and demonstrate outcomes (e.g. by creating a new digitally-enabled model of care, or by generating robust evidence of the impact of an existing digitally-enabled service) that can be scaled nationally, and provide further business opportunities for partners.
