Data and Analytics Plan

The Data and Ana­lyt­ics Plan brings togeth­er peo­ple, strat­e­gy, tech­nol­o­gy, process and data pro­vid­ing the foun­da­tion for South Aus­tralia toward its goal of hav­ing the world’s best health system.

What is it?

The Data and Ana­lyt­ics Plan 2020 – 2023:

  • Out­lines the cur­rent and future state of South Aus­tralian health­care data and ana­lyt­ics and how it can help SA Health become a glob­al leader in healthcare.
  • Explores the foun­da­tion ele­ments, peo­ple, process, tech­nol­o­gy and data, tests the propo­si­tion, and con­sid­ers the prac­ti­cal implementations.
  • Iden­ti­fies oppor­tu­ni­ties for all part­ners to have bet­ter access to rich data.
  • Enables stake­hold­ers to access the data they need, share new insights and col­lab­o­rate in a safe and secure manner.

The plan ulti­mate­ly aims to sig­nif­i­cantly improve health­care in SA and the health of all South Australians.

Why do we need it?

The plan was estab­lished in response to SA Health seek­ing to devel­op a road map to deliver:

  • Eas­i­er access to data and infra­struc­ture to put health data in the hands of the right peo­ple at the right time. 
  • The com­bi­na­tion of peo­ple, strat­e­gy, tech­nol­o­gy, process and data to dri­ve South Aus­tralia toward its goal of hav­ing the world’s best health system.

How it’s happening

SA Health’s Dig­i­tal Health team will exe­cute the plan with our sup­port. The plan will be imple­ment­ed over the next three years, and cov­ers the design, evi­dence, pro­cure­ment and step-by-step releas­es as new tools become available.

The Data and Ana­lyt­ics Plan Project Board will lead this project and guide its delivery.
