Data analytics is making a difference to people’s health and wellbeing, and reducing the pressure on Australia’s health system.

Data collected and linked from a range of care settings – including hospitals, general practice and outpatient services – is giving health practitioners a clearer picture of population health, and the evidence base they need to provide effective and tailored treatment options.

Here at the University, the Curtin Health Research and Data Analytics Hub has been established to extend our ability to use very large sets of health data and to train the future health workforce in using data.
