Guiding principles for managing requests for the secondary use of de-identified general practice data


A decision-making support guide

Secondary use of general practice data


Data collected by general practice has a role to play in improving health in Australia by informing policy, public health initiatives, research, and service delivery.

To help practices evaluate requests for data, minimise risk, and comply with relevant legislation, the RACGP has developed  guiding principles  for the provision of de-identified general practice data for secondary use and a helpful checklist.
