MedicineInsight is a new GP continuous quality improvement program and source of data from primary health care, funded by the Australian Government and administered by NPS Medicinewise. Rob was one of a small number of researchers selected in 2015 to conduct experimental analyses in preparation for it becoming available to researchers more broadly. He evaluated the data on medical risk factors and influenza vaccination coverage. Dr Bernie Mullin, Client Relationship Manager MedicineInsight, will present background information on MedicineInsight, and Rob will present the results of his analysis. Dr Mullin will be available after the seminar to meet with researchers interested in accessing the data.
