Lead: Health Translation SA
The focus for this project is to make better use of the rich supply of data, information and knowledge in South Australia to improve both planning and delivery of health care services and improve patient outcomes. It encompasses collaboration between clinicians, academics, data specialists, health care planners and consumers. By enabling better access to data and enhanced analytics across the state, this collaborative Informatics Hub, will deliver exemplar projects that have significant potential for impact. It will intersect with SA’s new Commission for Excellence and Innovation and deliver on the data needs of SA Health Service projects by employing data fellows that work within clinical priorities.
Additionally, a Health Services Interface Data Project will focus on primary, acute and sub-acute care data. This will be informed by the SA based Primary Health Networks (PHNs), work with national projects in this space (led by Sydney Health Partners and Melbourne Academic Centre for Health) and link into the soon to be established SA Health Urgent Care Clinical Network.
