Caretrack Australia is part of a National Health and Medical Research Council (NH&MRC) funded program grant for improving the safety and aptness of healthcare.
Caretrack Australia's aim is to study how and why common conditions are managed by healthcare providers. The project anticipates recruiting 1000 participants and reviewing all healthcare medical records for 26 clinical conditions; this involves 723 indicators and approximately 3000 healthcare providers.
Intersect will build an offline data collection system and central database with web applications for managing data collection about treatment received by patients with certain conditions. The project is a collaboration of Caretrack Australia, the University of South Australia and UNSW.
