    Abstract

    In 2008 the Department of Further Education, Employment, Science and Technology
    (DFEEST) indicated an interest in collaborating with the Department of Health (DH) on a
    health lens project. Initial discussions revealed digital technology access and use in low
    socioeconomic status populations to be an area of particular interest to both agencies.
    Researchers from Flinders University of South Australia (FUSA) were commissioned to
    undertake a series of focus group discussions investigating the use of digital technology
    by members of this population group.
    This paper presents the perspectives of both the lead agency (DFEEST) and the
    researchers involved in the project (FUSA) on their experiences in working with DH on
    the Digital Technology Health Lens project.
