Urban Health Data Connectivity Project

University of New South Wales

Collaborator(s): AURIN, Intersect

Project Description

This project will look at developing connectivity between AURIN, NECTAR and RDSI e-infrastructure with a focus on health data. Health data is of great interest to the urban research, policy and decision-making community and this project will look at bringing in medical research data as well as health data available from the National Health Services Directory into the AURIN online workbench. The project will draw upon the already funded Australian National Medical Research Data Storage Facility and will look at making a subset of this data available via the AURIN workbench through connecting it to the AURIN geo-classification hierarchy.

This will be operationalised through the AURIN Sydney Data Hub managed by UNSW City Futures Research Centre and will utilise NECTAR and RDSI infrastructure developed and maintained by Intersect. An additional piece of connectivity work is required to also develop a client to the National Health Service Directory http://www.nhsd.com.au/ and make this data available to urban researchers, policy and decision-makers via the AURIN online workbench.

The metadata records for these data collections will be then entered in both the AURIN metadata tool and Research Data Australia.
