Title: Accelerate medical research by accessing enduring curated clinical data through BioGrid Australia

Speaker: Maureen Turner

BioGrid Australia is a not-for-profit member organisation that operates a secure infrastructure and governance platform connecting health information across member institutions. BioGrid’s members are health services, universities and research institutes that utilise this trusted virtual enduring data linkage platform to conduct collaborative multi-site research providing data insights that can be used to evaluate quality of care, treatment effectiveness and guide clinical decision making.

This presentation will provide an overview of BioGrid and how its unique governance framework is embedded within member hospitals enabling access to enduring curated hospital-based clinical data for ethically approved projects. The benefits of this unique governance framework are significant to both member institutions and researchers and can significantly accelerate access to data.
