Department of Health

health.gov.au digital transformation

The Commonwealth Department of Health asked Folk to help it transform its on-line presence to a consolidated, comprehensive and future-focused digital offering, in line with the Government’s transformation agenda.

Working together with the transition team, Folk employed a human-centred design approach to respond to the needs and challenges of diverse stakeholders. The design needed to address the multitude of interactions and relationships that any user could have with Health, for whatever reason, and at any point in time.
