What large clinical datasets exist across MACH Melbourne; how can we collate and curate them to maximise research outcomes?
The first step towards maximising the use and re-use of clinical health datasets from hospitals and clinical practices associated with the Melbourne Academic Centre for Health (MACH).
The issue faced with MACH data is that Information about many datasets is unavailable or not widely advertised. This data is held in many disparate data formats with differing governing policies.
A key aim is to document the process of discovery so that this process can be re-used elsewhere.
Who is this project for?
- MACH and Hospitals and Clinical practices that are a part of MACH
- The University of Melbourne Petascale Campus Initiative
- Policy makers at State and Federal level
- Hospital and research institute managers
What does this project enable?
This project enables discovery of clinical datasets within the University of Melbourne and other MACH members, and identifies problems to make the data reusable. This project lays a foundation to generate impact from reuse of these datasets.
