Spatially Enabling Health Data

in the Mitchell and Murrindindi Shires

Centre for Spatial Data Infrastructures and Land Administration was commissioned by the Lower Hume Primary Care Partnership (LHPCP) to research the potential and to document the technical requirements for spatially enabling health related data in the Shires of Mitchell and Murrindindi.


Introduction

This project aims to spatially enable health data in the Mitchell and Murrindindi shires to support evidence based planning and decision making for the providers of health services in the area. The project involves a multidisciplinary team from both the Centre for Spatial Data Infrastructures and Land Administration at the University of Melbourne and the Lower Hume Primary Care Partnership (LHPCP) .

To ensure that the project meets the needs of service providers in the region, a reference group with members from the LHPCP, Seymour Hospital (SH), Kilmore Hospital (KH), Mitchell Community Health Services (MCHS), Department of Health Services (DHS), Department of Rural Health, Mitchell and Murrindindi shires has been formed to guide the project development.


This website has been designed to communicate the progress and potential of the project to stakeholders in the area.
