Welcome to OHDSI Australia

The Observational Health Data Sciences and Informatics (OHDSI, pronounced "Odyssey") initiative is an interdisciplinary collaboration involving various stakeholders. Our mission is to unlock the potential of health data by utilizing large-scale analytics. Rest assured, all our solutions are open-source.


The establishment of OHDSI Australia has been facilitated by close cooperation with the Transformational Data Collaboration (TDC) https://machaustralia.org/projects/transformational-data-collaboration/

The TDC operates under the umbrella of the Australian Health Research Alliance (AHRA). Within the AHRA, it falls under the "Data Integration" focus of the "Data Driven Healthcare" activity stream. The TDC is driven by a clear objective:

"To harness the unique, open, and collaborative ethos of AHRA in fostering and supporting national data initiatives where an environment promoting openness, inclusivity, and non-competitiveness is paramount."

Given this, the objectives of AHRA's TDC seamlessly align with the strategic vision of OHDSI Australia.
