Welcome to OHDSI Australia!!

The Observational Health Data Sciences and Informatics (or OHDSI, pronounced "Odyssey") program is a multi-stakeholder, interdisciplinary collaborative to bring out the value of health data through large-scale analytics. All our solutions are open-source. OHDSI Australia is a newly formed Australian chapter.


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 is an initiative under the auspices of the Australian Health Research Alliance https://ahra.org.au/

Under the ‘Data Integration’ priority area of the ‘AHRA Data Driven Healthcare’ activity stream. It has a singular goal:

“To utilise the unique open and collaborative nature of AHRA to help develop and support national data initiatives where an open, inclusive and non-competitive environment is required.”

As such the aims of the AHRA TDC align perfectly with the strategy of OHDSI Australia.
