Health Informatics

Australia’s health care system faces many challenges. One is the increasing demand for clinical information to be shared between individual health practitioners, health care provider organisations and state/territory health departments.

Our Health Informatics research develops and applies innovative tools and techniques for evidence-based solutions and strategies to support improved health outcomes. Our goal is to unleash the value in health data, including both electronic health records and administrative data sets, to improve patient outcomes and health system performance and productivity.

We apply machine learning, natural language processing, formal logic, and statistical and simulation approaches to problems involving decision support, systems modelling and reporting.
