Data in General Practice

Data in General Practice

General practices and general practitioners that analyse and act on their patient data can have a greater insight into the needs of their patients, and are better positioned to provide the care that patients need, when they need it. Accurate patient data can highlight the most prevalent conditions, medications or social groups, and can help determine what conditions need to be prioritised.

WA Primary Health Alliance (WAPHA) provides licenses for the CAT Plus suite of data tools at no cost to general practices across Western Australia under a data sharing agreement.

Sharing your de-identified patient data with WAPHA allows us to provide your practice with access to quality data extraction and analysis that can assist you with accurately recording patient information and better understanding your patient population. It also helps WAPHA to commission the right kind of services where they are needed the most, to support you and your patients. For more information, you can read our fact sheet about securely sharing your data with WAPHA.
