Healthy Communities Research Data Collection

La Trobe University

Project Description

The project established a Healthy Communities Research Data Collection. This collection consists of de-identified health data collected from health service providers in Bendigo with which La Trobe University has been collaborating. These data have been brought together into a major open access data collection consisting of general patient data from the Loddon Mallee Murray Medicare Local (one year coverage) and patient data with a focus on cardiovascular disease from the Bendigo Health Service - Bendigo Hospital (ten year coverage). La Trobe University is continuing to work with these health service providers to understand the requirements to support the sustainable supply of health data for research purposes.

Data Type:

Health related data: - de-identified patient data
