The 2022 Emerging Researchers in Health Informatics Symposium (ERHIC) was organised by the new Research Network of the Australasian Institute of Digital Health (AIDH).

The event invited abstract submissions from PhD students and early-career researchers to the inaugural Symposium, a new event offering a unique opportunity for early-stage and emerging digital health and health informatics researchers in Australia to present their work, garner informed feedback, and network with senior researchers.

It was sponsored by the AIDH, steering organisations of the AIDH Research Translation Expert Advisory Group, the Digital Health CRC, and the Digital Health Informatics Network (DHIN). The event was hosted by Macquarie University and University of Melbourne ran the scientific program. There were 45 in-person attendees from Macquarie University, University of Melbourne, University of Queensland, Swinburne University, Monash University, CSIRO, and the Australian National University.

Kenisha Ward, Macquarie University won the best paper award, and Jodie Austin, University of Melbourne won the people’s choice award.
