Using routinely-collected data

We are maximising the use and reliability of routinely-collected data to identify gaps in practice and treatment, and to improve the efficiency of future research studies.

For example, our collaborations with the Australian Department of Health and NSW Health facilitate evaluations of new services using routinely collected hospital, emergency department and mental health data.

We are also using routinely-collected general practice data to derive outcomes for many clinical trials as well as working with NSW Health to pilot a project linking general practice data to hospital data.
