Data on patient access to, and use of, primary and secondary care services are a potential tool for population health and health service planning, and for researchers. This seminar demonstrates how research from this type of data are useful to Local Health Districts and Primary Health Networks in New South Wales to support their work, particularly in evaluating integration of primary and secondary health services.
Several examples using the Central and South Eastern Sydney Primary and Community Health Cohort/Linkage Resource will be provided including impact of care plans on health outcomes, impact of GP follow-up after hospitalisation on re-admissions, and predictors for high service use in older people.  The process of developing the policy relevant research questions with Local Health Districts and Primary Health Networks will also be described as well as how the research is changing practice.
