Data analytics

20 years of analysing, evaluating and reporting health information

Our experience with large health data

Our team of data intelligence and evaluation experts has experience in working with large and complex national and international health datasets to deliver analyses and reporting to answer important research questions.

MedicineInsight dataset

We analyse data from MedicineInsight to produce meaningful insights and actionable recommendations. We are adept at communicating these in compelling ways across different channels to ensure successful implementation in primary care.

Other health datasets

We work with Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (PBS), Medicare Benefits Schedule (MBS), 45 and Up Study and other published and unpublished real-world datasets to answer different research questions and assess the impact of program and policy interventions on the quality use of medicines, utilisation trends and overall health and economic outcomes.
