ARCHI becomes the Innovation Exchange

Logo: Agency for Clinical Innovation

The Australian Resource Centre for Healthcare Innovations (ARCHI) website is being integrated into the Agency for Clinical Innovation (ACI) website and will form a new Innovation Exchange.

We have established a new Beta or test ACI website where you can review and test the Innovation Exchange. We will continue to develop the site and would value your advice on how we can improve. Visit and let us know your feedback.

This provides the opportunity to consolidate and share clinical information and innovative knowledge resources across the NSW health system and beyond.
