Using routinely collected data in aged care research: a grey area

When the Department of Health launched the My Aged Care website in 2013 they “severely under-estimated the proportion of enquiries and referrals they would receive by fax". Yes, that's fax machines in *2013*. However, electronic data systems are increasingly starting to be used in aged care.

This presentation will discuss the joys of using messy routinely collected datasets to examine the care and outcomes of people using aged care services.

Does pressure injury incidence differ between residential aged care facilities? Is home care service use associated with time to entry into residential aged care? These questions, and more, will be discussed.

We'll take a dive into some multilevel mixed effects models, and resurface with some risk-adjusted funnel plots. People from all backgrounds with an interest in data analysis welcome.

Dr Mikaela Jorgensen is a health services researcher at the Australian Institute of Health Innovation, Macquarie University. She has followed the traditional career pathway from speech pathologist to analyst of linked routinely collected health datasets for the last five years.
