Dr Mark Merolli FAIDH CHIA

I strive to grow the visibility and importance of informatics and digital health within our current and future workforce

I’m a passionate physiotherapist, with a clinical background in musculoskeletal and sports medicine. I have advanced knowledge in the field of digital health. I work clinically in musculoskeletal and sports medicine practice, research/academia, and consult/advise on various aspects of digital and technology-enabled practice.

My interests include various facets of physiotherapy, such as: musculoskeletal, sports medicine, adolescent health, new and emerging digitally supported models of care, workforce development, mentoring, physiotherapy practice and education, and technology.

I have a PhD in health informatics, am a Member of the Australian Physiotherapy Association (MAPA), committee member of the APA’s Sports & Exercise Vic Branch Committee (SEPA), am a Fellow of the Australasian Institute of Digital Health (FAIDH), and I have a formal certification in health informatics (CHIA)- endorsed by the Australasian Institute of Digital Health.

I’m the immediate-past chair of the AIDH Vic State Committee, and also the immediate past-chair of the International Medical Informatics Association – Participatory Health and Social Media Working Group (IMIA – PHSM)

I enjoy providing thought leadership on digital health clinical practice, particularly within my professional communities in the Australian Physiotherapy Association, World Physiotherapy, AIDH, and IMIA.

My passion is to connect and share with likeminded professionals. As technology continues to intertwine with healthcare and physio practice, it’s important we’re equipped with the knowledge and understanding to operate confidently and effectively in this environment.
