The Consumers Health Forum of Australia (CHF) is working with the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW) to promote consumer and community awareness and confidence about important new work the AIHW is progressing on developing a National Primary Health Care Data Asset. It is envisaged that the Data Asset will support a better understanding of what happens to patients in the primary health care system – including their diagnoses, treatments and outcomes by bringing together various sources of primary health care data over time.

To stimulate the consumer and community conversation about this significant development,  CHF and AIHW are holding two webinars which you are invited to join online.  The first webinar, on 30 October, will focus on issues of privacy, security and patient consent and will feature a panel of knowledgeable consumers and clinicians chaired by CHF CEO Leanne Wells.  

AIHW is the leading health and welfare statistics agency in Australia and its vision is to provide stronger evidence (data and information) for better decisions and improved health and welfare.

The second webinar on 11 November will focus on the benefits of the Data Asset.
