I am a sport & exercise medicine physician. I help develop virtual care pathways and utilise patient reported data to optimise and monitor the recovery of patients that I treat
Dr James Lawrence is a Sport & Exercise Medicine Physician and a director at North Sydney Sports Medicine Centre.
Elite sporting organisations increasingly leverage large amounts of data to optimize the health and wellbeing of their athletes, using a preventative healthcare model. This is something that James is passionate about applying at a population level. He has developed a strong interest in digital health technologies and their application in medicine, and co-founded myscoreit to help measure healthcare outcomes as one of the key elements underpinning the move towards value-based care. He is a Certified Health Informatician (CHIA) and has implemented a process at North Sydney Sports Medicine to automate the collection of Patient Reported Outcome Measures.
James is also interested in developing digital care pathways that leverage the increasing move towards Telehealth and remote patient monitoring and has recently launched a Sports Concussion pathway to help manage patients virtually. His other clinical interests include altitude and expedition medicine, having published research in this area and provided medical care on high-altitude treks.
