Australian Academy of Science

15 July 2019 - Regulatory barriers that limit timely access to population and health data must be resolved to achieve better health outcomes for Australians, according to leading scientists and medical health researchers.

The Australian Academy of Science and the Australian Academy of Health and Medical Sciences are calling for the COAG Health Council to address health data availability and linkage as a priority at its next meeting later this year.

The call follows a roundtable convened by the two Academies that brought together some of Australia’s leading health and medical researchers, clinicians and other experts to identify areas for improvement.
