Clara Chow, a PHRI Senior International Fellow and long-time collaborator on our PURE study and other PHRI research, spoke yesterday at our offices at a special PHRI Research Rounds titled “Frugal digital health innovation and its implications for cardiovascular care during the COVID-19 era.”
Immediate past president of the Cardiac Society of Australia and New Zealand Cardiology Society (CSANZ) – its first female president – Chow is also Director of the Westmead Applied Research Centre (WARC) at University of Sydney.
“WARC has a “research approach that thinks and acts flexibly, aims to do more with less, embraces technology in health care, sees co-design and partnership as necessities for translation and impact, and consistently views its activities through the lens of value and equity.”
Chow’s talk included the TextCARE series of trials she led – which won $750,000 in the Google Impact Challenge – messaging on mobile phones with the goal of improving patient experience and support CVD prevention.

Her visit to us in Hamilton – the last time as a presenter and guest at our November 2019 20th anniversary research symposium – Chow’s talk was well attended both at our site and online yesterday.
