Health Analytics Research

Our team are at the forefront of health analytics research.


Led by Professor Jim Buttery, Chair of Health Informatics, our research team will use our data to conduct research in hospital medicine and public health.

Jim has a background in clinical research and infectious disease, and runs Australia’s leading vaccine safety service. Currently, his team are focused on COVID-19 research. We are fortunate to have great researchers that can keep our broader community safe now, and transition to a more paediatric focus over time.

Instilling a five-pillared approach, Jim improves child health informatics through direct patient care, patient care processes, public health, population health and policy, and community engagement.
