Jamie would like to assist in the realisation of digital health making a clinically meaningful positive difference to ordinary people’s lives, particularly in his own area of expertise, mental health. Living in a rural area, Jamie is also keen to see digital health solutions help to bridge the clinical care gap for people living in these areas, particularly in the context of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
