The Population Health Research Network is excited to host its third webinar for 2022 in its “Linkage Luminaries” webinar series with Professor Louisa Jorm.
Professor Jorm is an international leader in health ‘big data’ research and specifically in applying advanced analytic methods to large-scale routinely collected data, including hospital and medical and pharmaceutical claims data. Her main current research interests are in application of advanced analytics to large scale electronic health data to create real-world evidence about topics including cardiovascular risk prediction, disparities in cardiovascular disease care and outcomes, variation in surgical outcomes and healthcare at end-of-life. She has played a leading role in the establishment of major infrastructure and capacity for ‘big data’ health research in Australia, including the E-Research Institutional Cloud Architecture (ERICA) secure data analysis facility. Professor Jorm is a high-profile advocate for more and better use of routinely collected health data for research.
