CIRQIT stands for: Community | Innovation | Research | Quality | IT. It is a welcoming, beautifully equipped space where everyday people collaborate to share skills and knowledge to improve health and wellbeing in Melbourne’s south-west.
CIRQIT’s founders are social entrepreneurs and have an inspirational long-term vision for CIRQIT. It is a ‘proof of concept’, a model to demonstrate that shared care between health professionals, the community and technology, can improve a person’s health and wellbeing, reduce hospital admissions and save money.
Initially, CIRQIT will focus on its Community stream, starting with local patients, their needs and interests.
