• Health Studies Australian National Data Asset (HeSANDA) program

    The MACH Clinical Trials Consortium node aims to implement the objectives of the HeSANDA initiative throughout the consortium’s member institutions and its broader functioning environment by directly contributing to the building of the infrastructure and administrative requirements needed to support the sharing and reuse of clinical trial metadata.

  • Transformational Data Collaboration

    MACH leads the national Transformational Data Collaboration on behalf of the Australian Health Research Alliance (AHRA) to directly address the ‘integration of large data sets across the care continuum’ priority area. Australia has fragmented data holdings across all clinical domains, extending to terminologies, data models, and the quality assurance mechanisms employed. This collaboration will uplift the use of clinical data for research across Australia and engage national partners to support a consistent strategy in advancing Health Data Science.

  • Consolidation of record linkage algorithms in Victoria and beyond

    Many state and national data repositories, for example BioGrid and NPS MedicineInsight, use GRHANITE privacy protecting data linkage algorithms and are incompatible for data linkage with those using alternative algorithms such as Outcome Health. This significantly impacts the ability to link and use GP data across Victoria and nationally.

  • Future Health Today Project: Co-design of Prototype

    Nearly half of all Australians have at least one chronic disease such as diabetes, heart disease and chronic kidney disease, and most of these people will attend general practice. Early diagnosis and management is critical to ensure optimal health outcomes and technology has the capacity to facilitate this.
