Dr Annie Lau leads the Consumer Informatics stream at the Centre for Health Informatics, Australian Institute of Health Innovation. This is the most active and productive consumer informatics research program in Australia, investigating new approaches to improve consumer health and patient engagement through digital technology. She has a national and international profile for her expertise in consumer digital health.
Her research interests lie in digital health, consumer informatics, and patient work.
Her research involves: (i) using digital technology to understand the "work" patients and consumers do for their health, (ii) designing and evaluating digital health interventions for patients and consumers; and (ii) analysing patient and consumer behaviours using informatics and computational techniques.
Her research in consumer eHealth systems have been spun off into a new start-up venture, which launched in Silicon Valley in 2015. Her research has been mentioned in several national and international media appearances including her work on the Healthy.me.
Dr. Lau is a recipient of the NSW Health Early-Mid Career Fellowship. She was also the winner of the 2016 Women in Research Citation Awards for the discipline ‘Health Informatics’. These awards honour the outstanding achievements of early to mid-career women researchers in Australia across all fields of research in science, social sciences and the humanities.
