Administrative data analytics

The Administrative Data Analytics group provides expertise in the utilisation of linked population-based data from administrative and other sources to gain a comprehensive perspective on health and health systems. Through multi-disciplinary collaborations, our team is continually utilising new and existing data sources to highlight the health outcomes and needs of various populations.

Linking clinical and surveillance data with administrative data allows for distinct populations to be followed over protracted periods of time for multiple outcomes. The data linkages follow a ‘Privacy by Design’ philosophy and are operated under strict privacy preserving policies and procedures to ensure the highest standards of data security and confidentiality.

Current research areas include:

  • Developing a research platform for studying health service utilisation of Childhood Cancer Survivors in Queensland
  • Identifying health service improvements through analysis of Patient Reported Experience Measures (PREMs)
  • Saving time and costs in clinical trials through administrative data linkage
  • Measuring the impact of COVID-19 on medicines dispensed in Australia
  • Aiding clinical decision making through digital dashboard informatics

The team is located at Level 6, Oral Health Centre, UQ Herston campus.
